Why we are consulting on the Heslington Neighbourhood Plan

Heslington Parish Council submitted the Submission Version Heslington Neighbourhood Plan and associated documents to City of York Council on 2 October 2019. Once a Neighbourhood Plan is submitted, we are required to "publicise the documents submitted on our website and in such other manner as we consider is likely to bring the proposal to the attention of people who live, work or carry on business in the neighbourhood area" to be in compliance with the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012.

Background to the Heslington Neighbourhood Plan

Heslington Parish Council wrote to us in November 2015 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.

However, Heslington Parish Council withdrew the Neighbourhood Plan area application on Wednesday 13 April 2016.

A revised Heslington Neighbourhood Plan 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.

Heslington Parish Council is preparing a Neighbourhood Plan for their area. The Parish consulted on their Pre-Submission draft Neighbourhood Plan and associated documents for 6 weeks between 29 January and 12 March 2019.
