You will soon be receiving a document about the Pool-in-Wharfedale Neighbourhood Plan.
It is the intended content for the Neighbourhood Plan (a so-called Policy Intentions Document), which provides an initial indication of the planning policies the Parish Council would like to see in force over the next 10 years up to 2028.
The policy intentions have been drawn up based on the feedback we have had from the community. We now need to know whether or not you agree with them by completing the questionnaire.
You can come to one of the three drop-in sessions, which will be held in support of the consultation (members of the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group will be on hand to provide further information and answers to questions on the Plan you might have):
-> Pool Village Memorial Hall - Saturday 23rd September, 11:30 - 14:00
-> Pool Village Social Club Café - Friday 6th October, 08:30 - 10:30
-> Old Pool Bank Village Hall - Monday 9th October, 18:00 - 19:30 (Prior to Pool Parish Council meeting)
This is an important plan for the future of Pool-in-Wharfedale. Please find some time over the next month to read and have your say on it, so that the plan reflects the views of the community.
Following this consultation, the intention is to move to the statutory consultation on a final Neighbourhood Plan during the first half of next year, after which the plan will be submitted to Leeds to organise an independent examination. We anticipate that the plan will come into force sometime in 2019, subject to a referendum of all parishioners.
