Neighbourhood Planning Regulation 14 Public Consultation
Bramham cum Oglethorpe Neighbourhood Development Plan
In accordance with Neighbourhood Planning Regulation 14, Bramham 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 Monday 18th December 2017 until Monday 12th February 2018.
Proposed Bramham cum Oglethorpe Neighbourhood Development Plan
Bramham Parish Council has produced a Neighbourhood Development Plan that covers the whole of the parish of Bramham cum Oglethorpe. The Plan contains a vision for Bramham along with sets of themes, policies and objectives. The policies within the Plan seek to protect the character of Bramham, with policies guiding new development as well as protection policies relating to the green environment, built heritage and community facilities.
Following this consultation, the Plan will be amended and then submitted to Leeds City Council, 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 City Council will adopt the Plan, which will then become part of the statutory development plan – the Local Plan – for the Leeds District. Any planning applications submitted within the parish boundary will be determined in accordance with this Plan
