We will use this page to post information about the development of our Neighbourhood Plan.
The Parish Council is a qualifying body for the purpose of developing a Neighbourhood Plan under the Localism Act 2011.
The development of our Plan was progressed by a group of councillors and volunteers drawn from the community, known as the Neighbourhood Plan Forum.
We held informal consultation events in December 2015, November 2016 and March 2018, and, drawing on the feedback of all consultees, including that of our principal authority, City of Bradford MDC, we have prepared our draft Plan.
The most recent draft of the Plan was submitted to the planning authority on 16 October for the purpose of the next stage of formal consultation under Regulation 16 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012. This consultation is managed by the planning authority, and runs from 14 November to 9 January 2019. See the consultation documents here, and, in paper form, at the village locations listed below for the Regulation 14 consultation:
The documents can be consulted on City of Bradford MDC’s website:
Comments must be made in writing and submitted to Bradford Council, using the form below, by noon on 9 January 2019.
This draft of the Plan was informed by a landscape survey, specially commissioned by the Parish Council (follow link below), and was preceded by a pre-submission draft, published by the Parish Council for consultation under Regulation 14 of the Regulations on 13 July 2018:
Paper copies of the Plan were available at the following locations in Addingham:
- Memorial Hall
- Community Library
- Medical Centre
- Rowlands Pharmacy (by the Medical Centre)
- Telephone kiosk on Church St.
- Post Office
Comments on the draft had to be submitted by 24 August 2018 (see the letter to stakeholders below) and could be submitted to us using the representation form, also linked below:
THIS CONSULTATION HAS NOW CLOSED
The Regulation 14 draft Plan was preceded by a Preferred Options draft Plan which, together with the underlying plans and policies, may be viewed using the links further down this page. Please see the leaflet available here: Neighbourhood Plan Flyer to see why the Parish Council decided to revise the Plan’s policies to take account of comments received on the earlier draft. This leaflet was distributed to all households in the village to update residents, following the consultation on the Preferred Options draft (see below), and to introduce the next stage of the consultation process.
The Preferred Options Plan, together with its underlying plans and policies, may be viewed here:
See here the comments of residents and of local businesses on the draft Plan (the business survey was carried out as a separate exercise earlier in the year):
In preparing this draft, the Forum carried out housing site assessments for the village. See the methodology they used here:
In preparing the Preferred Options Draft Plan, the Forum had to ensure that all possible sites were assessed and the Parish Council thus issued a Call for Sites to any resident, landowner, business, developer or agent who wished to put forward sites for allocation for housing development through the Neighbourhood Plan. The form below was used for this purpose and respondees were asked not to submit sites within the Green Belt or sites already identified in the planning authority’s SHLAA.
See below information presented to the Open Event held on 3 November 2016 which launched the first draft of the Plan and explained the process for housing site assessments.
