Pocklington Neighbourhood Plan – Over Seven Years Delay

The Localism Act 2011 gave Parish/Town Councils the right to produce a Neighbourhood Plan that would sit alongside national planning legislation and ERYC policy to shape planning.

For reasons unknown there has been a delay of over seven-years with Pocklington Town Council introducing a Neighbourhood Plan yet only the PTC can undertake the Neighbourhood Plan for Pocklington. The number one tool to shape planning in Pocklington is a Neighbourhood Plan. Yet still there is no Pocklington Neighbourhood Plan.

But what is this a Neighbourhood Plan – Public Consulation Survey the month before the ERYC election where three PTC Councillors are seeking election to represent Pocklington Provincial at County Hall?

Surely this is just a coincidence.

Has the horse not already bolted?
