Thank you to all those who took the time to read and comment on the Draft Neighbourhood Plan. It was reassuring that most comments considered the Plan reflected well the needs and views of Earswick Parish.
Following this consultation, a small number of changes were made to the draft Plan to reflect the comments received from both statutory consultees and local residents. A summary of the comments and the changes made to the Plan can be found on this website under Neighbourhood Plan. Further changes were also made to the wording of the Green Belt Policy, ENP4, following concerns expressed at the Annual Parish Meeting.
The Neighbourhood Plan has now entered the next stage of the process. The Neighbourhood Plan has been submitted to City of York Council. It is anticipated that City Of York will publish the Submission Version of the Neighbourhood Plan for consultation in June. During this period, you will be given a further opportunity to comment on the draft Plan.
