Neighbourhood Plan

Wennington Parish Council submits it Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP)

In accordance with Regulation 15 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012, Wennington Parish Council, as the qualifying body, has now submitted its Neighbourhood Development Plan. The Plan proposal relates to planning matters (the use and development of land) and has been prepared in accordance with the statutory requirements and processes set out in the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended by the Localism Act 2011) and the Neighbourhood Planning Regulations 2012.

The Neighbourhood Development Plan proposal does not deal with county matters (mineral extraction and waste development), nationally significant infrastructure or any other matters set out in Section 61K of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.

The Neighbourhood Plan proposal relates to the Wennington designated neighbourhood area and to no other area. There are no other Neighbourhood Plans relating to that neighbourhood area. the following key documents were submitted to Lancaster City Council on Friday 22nd June 2018:

Background information and documents

Wennington Parish Council made a commitment in June 2016 to produce a Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) covering the whole of the Parish Boundary. A Neighbourhood Planning Sub Group (NPSG) of the Parish Council was established, to lead on this important initiative, and reports to the Parish Council at each council meeting.

Lancaster City Council approved (in accordance with Part 2 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012) our neighbourhood plan designation area.

The NPSG is totally committed to ensuring that parishioners and stakeholders are kept informed and fully engage with the development of our Neighbourhood Plan. A copy of our ‘Communication and Engagement Strategy’ can be found by clicking here.
