Reasons for consulting on the Strensall with Towthorpe Neighbourhood Plan

Strensall with Towthorpe Parish Council submitted the Submission version Strensall with Towthorpe Neighbourhood Plan and associated documents to City of York Council on 16t June 2021. 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)

Background to Strensall with Towthorpe Neighbourhood Plan

In August 2015, Strensall with Towthorpe Parish Council wrote to us to formally submit the Strensall with Towthorpe Neighbourhood Plan application and boundary. People who live, work and conduct business in the area were invited to comment on the application and boundary from 16 November to 14 December 2015, as part of a four week consultation.

Strensall with Towthorpe Neighbourhood Plan application and boundary was approved at the Executive for Planning and Transport decision session on 7 January 2016. This enabled work to start on developing the neighbourhood plan for the area.

A revised application and boundary for Strensall with Towthorpe Neighbourhood Plan was submitted by Strensall with Towthorpe Parish Council to us in May 2017. As part of our role as the Local Planning Authority, we published the application and invited comments and feedback for a period of six weeks between Wednesday 28 March and Friday 11 May 2018 - no responses were received.

A revised application and boundary for Strensall with Towthorpe Neighbourhood Plan was approved at the Executive for Planning and Transport Decision Session on 14 June 2018.

Strensall with Towthorpe Parish Council consulted on their Pre-Submission Neighbourhood Plan from 1 July to 26 August 2019. This represented the first consultation on their draft Neighbourhood Plan setting out proposed planning policies for their designated neighbourhood area.
