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.
The Ingleby Arncliffe Neighbourhood Plan was made (adopted) on 14 December 2021. The plan is now part of the development plan for Hambleton.
