Cawthorne Parish Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) Consultation

The Issues and Options document, prepared by the Steering Group of local volunteers, has now been the subject of public consultation following our event in November 2017.  Thank you to everyone who attended and submitted completed questionnaires and more detailed comments.  

The Consultation period on the Issues & Options document has now ended and comments have been drawn together into one overall comparison document which can be accessed HERE.

Please see timetable of next steps on the right hand side.

There is still further work to be done so if you want to get involved please contact Tony Butterworth on 01226 790006 or email on    


What is a Neighbourhood Plan - in very simple terms it is :

  • A document that sets out planning policies for the neighbourhood area, planning policies are used to decide whether to approve planning applications
  • Written by the local community, the people who know and love the area, rather than the Local Planning Authority
  • A powerful tool to ensure the community gets the right types of development in the right place
