Wrenthorpe neighbourhood plan

We have received applications to designate a neighbourhood forum and neighbourhood area for Wrenthorpe. See below for details of the applications. Applications to designate a neighbourhood forum and a neighbourhood area can be consulted on at the same time.

If there is no parish or town council in the proposed Neighbourhood Area, as is the case in Wrenthorpe, a group must apply to the local authority to be designated as a Neighbourhood Forum, who, if designated, will be the only body who can lead the neighbourhood planning process in that area until the forum designation expires or is withdrawn.

Before we can designate an area or the forum, it has to give local people the opportunity to comment on the proposed neighbourhood area boundary and the neighbourhood forum application.

Application details:

  • Wrenthorpe Neighbourhood Forum (WNF)
