Introduction

Our Vision is for Aberford and District to provide opportunity for all to live, work and play in an environment which is safe, healthy and attractive. Our parish can and should provide opportunities for local people to find housing, find employment and access opportunities for education, recreation and community activities, while maintaining the essential rural character of the parish and surrounding countryside.

Aberford & District Parish Council, 2011

Aberford Neighbourhood Plan

Aberford & District Parish Council took the decision to produce a Neighbourhood Plan at its meeting on 17 January 2012 in response to the Government’s publication of the Localism Bill. The Localism Act 2011 introduced statutory Neighbourhood Planning in England. It enables communities, such as ourselves, to draw up a Neighbourhood Plan for our area and is intended to give us more of a say in the development of our local area (within certain limits and parameters). The Neighbourhood Plan will be informed by local opinions on relevant planning matters, e.g.: protection, provision and location of services and facilities; housing allocations; social housing, design of development; the natural/rural environment, countryside and amenity space; protection and conservation of built heritage; and infrastructure improvements.

In order to produce this plan the Parish Council established a Neighbourhood Development Plan Management Group to oversee a process that will result in the preparation of a draft plan that will be put to a public referendum. Terms of reference and membership of the Neighbourhood Development Plan Management Group were approved by the Parish Council at a meeting on 22 May 2012 – a copy can be viewed here.

The Group meets regularly at meetings which are open to the public. A list of the meeting dates and minutes of the meetings can be found by clicking here.

The Parish Council will be the body that formally submits the Neighbourhood Plan to Leeds City Council.
