Neighbourhood Planning Regulation 14 Public Consultation
Haworth, Cross Roads and Stanbury Neighbourhood Development Plan

In accordance with Neighbourhood Planning Regulation 14, Haworth, Cross Roads and Stanbury Parish Council is undertaking a public consultation and would like to invite comments from organisations and individuals on its Pre-Submission Neighbourhood Development Plan.

The public consultation runs from Friday 26th October until Friday 7th December 2018.

Proposed Haworth, Cross Roads and Stanbury Neighbourhood Development Plan
Haworth, Cross Roads and Stanbury Parish Council has produced a Neighbourhood Development Plan which covers the whole of the civil parish of Haworth, Cross Roads and Stanbury. The plan contains a vision for the parish along with a set of aims, planning policies and proposals and community actions to achieve the vision. The planning policies within the plan seek to protect the character and meet the needs of the parish, with policies guiding new development, notably for housing, hotel development and highways/travel, as well as protection and enhancement policies relating to the green environment (including Local Green Spaces), the built environment and community facilities.

Following this consultation, the plan will be amended and then submitted to the City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council (CBMDC), as required, for a further Regulation 16 consultation and independent examination. The plan, if successful at examination, will then proceed to a local referendum. If the plan receives a majority vote the district council will adopt the plan which will then become part of the statutory development plan – the Local Plan – for Bradford. Any planning applications submitted within the boundary will be determined in accordance with this plan.

Aim of this consultation
This consultation seeks your views on the content of the proposed Haworth, Cross Roads and Stanbury Neighbourhood Development Plan, together with the supporting Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) and Habitats Regulations Assessment (HRA) Screening Report.
