Have your say in the latest consultation on our Neighbourhood Development Plan from 15th July until 15th September 2019

Published: 09 July 2019

The NDP gives local people more say in how developments should take place in the Holme Valley, and once adopted it will result in more money being available for community projects within the Home Valley: make sure you have your say by completing our questionnaire between the 15th July and the 15th September ! Fulldetails are given on our Neighbourhood Plan page where you will find a link to the questionnaire, details of the Draft Plan and supporting documentation.

We have updated the plan to reflect your feedback from last year's ' Your Valley Your Voice ' consultation and this ' Regulation 14 ' consultation is your final opportunity to help us improve the plan and endorse its progress before it is submitted to Kirklees. They will then publish it for a further 6 weeks consultation before it is examined by an Independent Planning Examiner. Following the inclusion of the Planning Examiner's recommendations, you will then decide whether to support it through a referendum in 2020. If more than 50% of those who vote are in favour the Plan  it will be formally adopted and will thereafter be used by Kirklees to inform planning decisions in the Valley.

We will also be consulting on our recently completed Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) which will help us to improve how the plan supports the sustainability of our natural, historic and social environment in the Holme Valley.

Please complete our questionnaire on-line or pick up a paper copy from Holmfirth or Honley Libraries. 

The Steering Group will be hosting drop-in sessions as follows:

11 am - 2 pm  on Friday 26th and Saturday 27th July at Honley Parish Rooms

11 am - 2 pm  on Friday 6th and Saturday 7th September at Holmfirth Library

Thank you for helping to shape the future of our Valley!
