Get involved with the Neighbourhood Development Plan and you can help shape the future of Ledbury. Consultation events are a great opportunity to learn more about the plan, find out what is happening in Ledbury and give your opinion.
The next consultation will be on the Draft Plan.
The NDP is a planning policy document which will become the third layer of planning policy in Ledbury after the National Planning Policy Framework and the Herefordshire Core Strategy. This means that, once adopted, planning applications in Ledbury ward will have to be compliant with the NPPF, The Herefordshire Core Strategy and the Ledbury NDP.
The Ledbury Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) is making good progress & the NDP Group will soon have a draft plan to show you. The Ledbury NDP is based on the evidence collected by the NDP Group (and available to view on our website) and the views of the Community expressed at the many consultation events we have held during this process.
You can see the work being done to ensure the people of Ledbury have every opportunity to be involved in shaping the future of Ledbury in the Communications Strategy and Consultation Plan below.
Ledbury Neighbourhood Development Plan Consultation 1st December—5th January
THIS CONSULTATION EVENT HAS NOW ENDED. We would like to thank all those who have contributed by completing the questionnaires - watch this space for the results.
The NDP will therefore afford a measure of control to the community about what sort of development takes place in the town. In order to see the work undertaken so far see consultation information below.
The proposed Objective and Policies and potential allocation sites put forward in the Call for Sites were consulted on in July 2016. We received a broadly positive response. We have however made some alterations to those objectives and policies and identified the sites, that from the evidence so far, we consider most appropriate for allocation.
The purpose of this consultation is to present all recent developments and alterations to the plan to the community before we publish the draft plan document in February 2017. As part of this consultation we want to know whether you:
Believe Ledbury should have a settlement boundary and whether you agree with our proposed boundary?
Agree with our shopping frontages designations?
Agree with our definition of where ‘Town Centre’ housing should be located?
Believe we have allocated the right sites for housing for the Neighbourhood Development Plan?
Agree with our new proposed Natural Environment Objectives & Policies?
Policies and Call for Sites CONSULTATION : Ends 31st July 2016
