The Heslington Neighbourhood Plan area application was approved on 22 November 2016. This decision enables work to start on developng a Neighbourhood Plan for the area.
In November 2015, Heslington Parish Council wrote to us to formally submit an application for designation of a Neighbourhood Plan area.
People who live, work and conduct business in the area were able to comment on the application and boundary from 18 January 2016 to 29 February 2016 as part of a 6 week consultation.
Heslington Parish Council withdrew the Neighbourhood Plan area application on Wednesday 13 April 2016.
A revised area application was submitted by Heslington Parish Council on 10 October 2016 for the whole Parish. This application was granted automatic designation following amendments to the Neighbourhood Plan (General) and Development Management Procedure (Amendment) Regulations 2016, which came into force on 1 October 2016.
