EARSWICK NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN
The draft Neighbourhood Plan for Earswick has been updated to reference the recently published City of York Local Plan. In addition the proposed Policy on the Green Belt has also being amended to reflect a similar Policy contained within the approved Upper and Nether Poppleton neighbourhood Plan. The main advantage of basing it on a similar policy in an Approved Plan is that it greatly increases the chances it will be approved by the Examiner.
The basic premise of the Earswick Neighbourhood Plan, that there should be no further development on the existing Green Belt, remains unchanged.
City of York Council will now re-‐consult, before the Plan is subjected to an Examination by an Independent Examiner. Once any further amendments have been made to the Plan it will be subjected to a local referendum, and then “Made” by City of York Council and used to determine planning applications in Earswick Parish.
If you require any further information please contact the Parish Clerk.
