                            (i)The Parish Council received a presentation from Peter Hirschfeld, Community Development Officer of Humber & Wolds Rural Community Council regarding Neighbourhood Development Plan. 

The meeting was closed at 7:20p.m for HWRCC to provide information on Community Development plans

HWRCC work:

Our support to communities undertaking a Neighbourhood Plan is linked to the initial consultation aspects of the project.


It is important to understand that consultation is very much a first stage of the process, prior to the plan going to independent evaluation, so as wide a range and type should be undertaken by the Parish Council, in order to ensure the widest possible participation in the Plan. Thus Focus Groups, Drop In sessions, etc. should be part of the process of starting the Neighbourhood Plan.


As Neighbourhood Plans are linked entirely to Spatial Planning, help is available from ERYC Planning Dept. to assist with the process as it relates to Planning and Planning Policy.


The first part of the process is to identify the area that the Plan will cover and that needs to be discussed with the Planners at ERYC. The National Policy Planning Framework states that there is a presumption in favour of sustainable development, which means in effect that as a community you cannot use the Neighbourhood Plan to say no to future/further development. All that you can do is look at ways to change the concentration of, design of, etc. the allocation of housing as laid out in the Local Plan. Of course you might also wish to consider business development which could include Shops, offices and business premises and as well as community facilities which can all be considered.


The meeting was re-opened at 7:55p.m

The Parish Council thanked Mr Hirchfeld for the information provided and matter placed on the next Planning Agenda for further discussion.
