Update on Neighbourhood Development Plan

The Bradleys Both Pre-Submission Consultation Draft Neighbourhood Development Plan was shared with the community during a statutory 6-week consultation and also with statutory bodies over the last year.
Since then, the Neighbourhood Planning Group have carefully reviewed all comments and feedback received and are now  finalising the Draft Final Neighbourhood Plan prior  to submitting it to Craven District Council.
The  FInal Neighbourhood Plan will then be submitted to an independent examiner, and once passed, it will proceed to Referendum of Bradleys Both residents.  A YES vote of over 50% of those voting will be required for the NDP to be incorporated into Craven District Council’s Local Development Plan and the Plan will then have statutory powers and will implement the vision for our community and shape the future up to 2032.

  1. Please can you clarify what has happened or is happening to the Neighbourhood Plan as it now three and a half years with what it appears to be nothing happening.
    Many thanks

    1. Hi, The Neighbourhood Plan has been held up due to COVID, however there was a remote meeting with Craven District Council towards the end of last year where amendments were discussed. Most of those amendments have now been incorporated and we are awaiting updated maps which CDC are working on to complete the Plan, it will then have to go back to the graphic designer for the maps to be included. Once that is done the Parish Council will be asked to approve its formal submission to CDC and an examiner will be chosen to inspect the Plan and associated documents. Any amendments the examiner may suggest will then be considered following which there will be a referendum before the Plan is adopted by CDC. It has been a long process, not helped by COVID, but work has continued behind the scenes.
