Through the Localism Act the Government has introduced new rights and powers to allow local communities to come together to prepare Neighbourhood Plans. The Localism Act introduced a new tier to the planning system, giving local communities greater control over the development of their areas. It will enable a community, be it a group of residents, employees or businesses, to have a say in where new development should go, what it should look like and also the power to grant planning permission.
Ingleby Arncliffe Parish Council was consulted on their pre-submission draft neighbourhood plan from 20 December 2019 to 14 February 2020. For more information about the consultation and to download the draft plan visit the Ingleby Arncliffe Parish Council website here:
