Neighbourhood Plan

Neighbourhood Plans are formal documents which give the local community a say in the type of development which takes place in their area. Once adopted via a referendum of local residents they become part of the local council’s plans and have to be taken into consideration when any new planning application is assessed.

Work has been going on for a number of years to prepare a Neighbourhood Plan for the Adel area and we are nearly ready to submit the draft Plan to Leeds City Council who will run the adoption process. Before that happens though we want to offer residents and other interested parties a final opportunity to make comments on the Plan.

We will shortly be commencing a formal six week consultation process on the draft Plan and a link to an electronic copy of the Plan will be posted here by the start of June, together with guidance on how to give feedback. Please check back in June to see what we are proposing and let us know what you think of it.
