Holme Valley Neighbourhood Development Plan

Neighbourhood Plan Regulation 14 Consultation 

Thank you to all those who took part in our consultation over the summer. We had a good number of responses with many detailed comments to consider. These included feedback from Kirklees Council and the Peak District National Park as well as from local residents, community groups and other statutory bodies. Our steering group has been reviewing all the responses carefully and working with our planning consultant, Kirkwells, to agree how best to update the Neighbourhood Development Plan ready for submission to Kirklees. Watch this space.

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

Please help us to improve our proposed planning policies and influence the future development in the Holme Valley by completing our questionnaire by 15th September. Full details 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 drop-in sessions in Holmfirth Library from 11am to 2pm on Friday 6th and Saturday 7th September so do drop in if you have any questions or email us on holmevalleyndp@gmail.com


Neighbourhood Plan Update 

Published: 01 November 2018

The Steering Group has reviewed all the consultation responses from the public and is currently updating the Draft Plan ready for formal consultation with the statutory bodies. We have recently been advised by Kirklees that we have to prepare a Strategic Environment Assessment (SEA) so the issue of the updated Draft Plan will be delayed until the end of the year to accommodate the additional advice from the SEA process. More updates will follow but we are still working hard to proceed to referendum during mid-2019.
