The new Sprotbrough Neighbourhood Development Plan in summary – what do you think?
Please click on the following link to read the First draft of the Sprotbrough Neighbourhood Plan which is published for informal public consultation until Thursday 31st January 2019.
The NDP has been prepared by a dedicated group of local residents (the Sprotbrough Neighbourhood Champions) on behalf of Sprotbrough and Cusworth Parish Council. After several more stages of public consultation and an examination by an independent examiner, the NDP will be subjected to a local referendum and local voters will be able to decide if the plan should be used to help determine future planning applications in the area.
The Draft Plan includes local planning policies to guide development in Sprotbroughup to 2032 – the same time frame as that for the new emerging Local Plan for Doncaster. The NDP has been prepared building on the results of a Household and Schools Survey, previous public consultations and the local knowledge and research of the Sprotbrough Neighbourhood Champions. The Draft NDP has a Vision and 9 Objectives and sets out 12 draft planning policies:
The significance of local shops is recognised and there are policies to support suitable economic development and proposals linked to home working.
Non planning matters such as the management of traffic and car parking are also addressed in a separate section.
We need to know if local residents and stakeholders support these policies and if they have any comments about how they could be improved.
From Monday 10th of December 2018, a printed version of the Draft Neighbourhood Plan can be viewed at Sprotbrough Library, the Parish Council Office at the Goldsmith Centre or via both the Parish Council website www.sc-pc.co.uk and Sprotbrough Neighbourhood Champions website www.sprotbroughnc.co.uk
You will be able to access a response form at each of these locations – or click on this link to download one – and let us know what you think about the Plan. Any comments should be made in writing to the Parish Council (Sprotbrough and Cusworth Parish Council office, Goldsmith Centre Sprotbrough Road, Sprotbrough, Doncaster DN5 8BP) or sent by email email@example.com
Your feedback will be appreciated.
