Neighbourhood Plan

Many thanks to all who voted in the Referendum on 10th June. There was a massive 40% turnout and the result is 373 voted YES and 30 voted NO. The Cawthorne Neighbourhood Plan is therefore now a recognised planning document. This means that the policies within the plan must be taken into consideration by BMBC when considering any planning applications.

A big thank you to all members of the steering group who put in many hours of work to produce this Plan for the village

As of Monday, 14 July Barnsley MBC formally adopted the Neighbourhood Plan.  It is now a statutory document in the Barnsley Development Plan.
