Neighbourhood Plans

Chop GateChop Gate

Neighbourhood Planning was introduced by the Government through the Localism agenda and is a means for communities to decide the future of the places where they live and work.

Communities are now able to:

  • choose where they want new homes, shops and offices to be built
  • have their say on what those new buildings should look like and what infrastructure should be provided
  • grant planning permission for the new buildings they want to see go ahead.

The National Park Authority has produced a Planning Advice Note which provides guidance for local residents, businesses and parish councils on Neighbourhood Planning and how Neighbourhood Planning in the National Park will be handled.

Further guidance can be found on the Government's Neighbourhood Planning webpages.

Ingleby Arncliffe Neighbourhood Plan (2021)

The Parish of Ingleby Arncliffe have produced a Neighbourhood Plan for that Parish. Only a very small area (The Blue Bell Inn, two cottages and the modern farm buildings/grain store associated with Arncliffe Farm) is located within the National Park, the remainder being within the Hambleton District Council Local Planning Authority area. As the majority of the area falls on the Hambleton side, the District Council was the lead authority assisting with the Plan.

The National Park Authority and Hambleton District Council formally approved the Neighbourhood Area at their respective meetings on 18th September and 7th October 2014.
