Fifth neighbourhood plan application!
Lancaster City Council has received a neighbourhood plan application from Slyne with Hest Parish Council, this proposes that the plan will cover the whole parish area.
The council will consult on this for 4 weeks from Monday 1 to 29 February 2016 before making a decision.
Neighbourhood planning gives communities the chance to decide where new development should be and what it should look like. For example, new homes, shops and offices. A plan must be in line with the District’s Local Plan and is subject to an independent examination and community referendum. If approved, a neighbourhood plan forms part of the district’s Local Plan and it is used in helping to make decisions on planning applications.
