We will publish confirmation of the committee process in due course.

Background to the Huntington neighbourhood plan

In April 2015 Huntington 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 10 August to 7 September 2015, as part of a four week consultation.

Huntington neighbourhood plan application and boundary was approved as a delegated decision on 28 September 2015, enabling work to start on developing the neighbourhood plan for the area.

Huntington Parish Council undertook a formal pre-submission consultation in accordance with Regulation 14 of the Neighbourhood Planning Regulations for 8 weeks between 29 January 2018 and ended on the 23 March 2018.

Huntington Parish Council submitted the Submission draft Huntington Neighbourhood Plan and associated documents to City of York Council on 31st July 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, as amended).

Following submission of the document by Huntington Parish Council, the Council ran a consultation on the Submission Neighbourhood Plan documents for six weeks between Monday 7 October to Monday 18 November 2019. The documents we consulted on are:

Any representation recieved were processed in accordance with our Neighbourhood Planning Privacy Statement wherein it sets out more about how we will process and use your personal data from this consultation.
