Selby Town Council - Neighbourhood Plan (NP)
In 2015 the Town Council approached the District Council to designate the area for a Neighbourhood Plan. The District Council approved the designation and the Town Council are now working towards completing a NP.
The areas covered in Selby Town Neighbourhood Plan were:
Enhance the Green Space
Develop Cycle Paths
Provide Infrastructure including transport, trains and waterways
There was a questionnaire available in December 2016 to consult with the local community. The areas were Green Infrastructure – to include
- Transport, trains, cycle paths and waterways
- Green Space
The questionnaire is attached
for information. The responses were due back by 14 January 2017 and a report on the responses was completed and is attached.
The responses to the consultation questionnaire were from a variety of ages, lots of teenagers aged 14-17. Improvement to Health & Well Being came through on the responses.
A consultancy (Groundwork Yorkshire) have been appointed by the Town Council to provide admin support for this project. Locality provided £4,025 towards the initial consultation and admin costs. As the plan progresses more work will be needed and a Working Group has been appointed to look at the NP and ensure it meets the criteria set by DCLG and Selby District Council.
There have been several meetings to discuss the NP. The notes from the meetings are attached below:
The NP is a work in progress. This page will be updated as further information is available.
