An independent examiner, Peter Biggers BSc Hons MRTPI was appointed to examine the Holme Valley Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP).

Examination news and documents

The examiner produced an initial set of questions for Holme Valley Parish Council (qualifying body), Kirklees Council and the Peak District National Park Authority. This was based on an initial assessment of the submitted plan and representations received through the Regulation 16 Publicity/Consultation.

The examination was conducted through written representations rather than a virtual public inquiry.

Submission documents

Kirklees Council undertook publicity on the submission documents between 8 December 2020 and 2 February 2021. This is required by Regulation 16 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (as amended). You can view all the comments we received using the Kirklees Planning Consultation Portal

Strategic Environmental Assessment

In accordance with the Strategic Environmental Assessment Directive 2001/42/EC the council has determined that the draft Holme Valley Neighbourhood Plan is likely to have significant environmental effects and therefore requires a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA).


Holme Valley neighbourhood area: Approved on 27th January 2015 (Kirklees Council cabinet) and 13th February 2015 (Peak District National Park authority).
