Neighbourhood Plan

Long Bennington Local Plan

The new Localism Bill will devolve greater powers to councils and neighbourhoods and give local communities more control over housing and planning decisions. It is expected that Parishes create a Neighbourhood Plan (Local Plan) to deal with a range of subjects that affect the future development of the Parish. Further to this, a working group was established in Long Bennington.

Attached below for your information are various documents relating to the Long Bennington Neighbourhood Plan.

The Long Bennington Neighbourhood Plan was formally made part of SKDC's Development Plan on 19 July 2017. This follows the positive outcome of the Referendum held on 29 June 2017, where 88.8% of those who voted were in favour of the plan.
