Public Consultation on Neighbourhood Area Applications

Notification of Public Consultations – Neighbourhood Area Applications

Bradford Council is currently consulting on four Neighbourhood Area Applications from the following Parish Councils: 

  • Burley-in-Wharfedale
  • Haworth, Cross Roads & Stanbury
  • Ilkley  (Revised boundary map)
  • Oxenhope

These applications are formal requests from each Parish Council to Bradford Council to become recognised as a Neighbourhood Area under Part 2, Section 5 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012.  

These applications establish each Parish Council’s intentions to produce a Neighbourhood Development Plan or Neighbourhood Development Order for their area. 

Aim of the consultation

This current consultation seeks your views and comments on the submitted statement of intent and boundary map for each proposed neighbourhood area. 

We would like to know your views, particularly if you agree or disagree with the proposal for a Neighbourhood Area; and if the proposed areas boundary is appropriate, of if it should be changed in any way.   

Please note that the Ilkley Neighbourhood Area Application is being re-advertised for public comment with an amended boundary map which clarifies the extent of the Neighbourhood Area Boundary.  The statement of intent which accompanies the map is unchanged, but is available as part of this consultation.    

Following the consultation the Council’s Executive Committee will decide if it is appropriate to approve these areas as Neighbourhood Areas.  If so, then the respective Parish Councils may begin work on the preparation of a Neighbourhood Development Plan for their area.

Consultation Period

The consultation will last for 8 weeks, starting on Monday 22nd July until Monday 16th September 2013.
