The Holme Valley Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) Publicity (Consultation)

Kirklees Council are asking the general public to comment on the Home Valley Neighbourhood Development Plan before it is submitted for independent examination.

The plan, produced by Holme Valley Parish Council and its Steering Group, captures previously gathered local feedback to set out an agreed vision, objectives and planning policies for the area.

These policies help developers understand local priorities and aspirations, as well as support wider agendas including climate change issues and the Kirklees Local Plan.

The consultation gives people the chance to comment on five documents:

  • Holme Valley NDP Submission Plan
  • Strategic Environmental Assessment Report
  • Habitats Regulation Assessment Screening
  • Consultation Statement
  • Basic Conditions Statement

Have your say

The publicity (consultation) will run for a period of 8 weeks commencing 12pm on Tuesday 8 December 2020 until 5pm Tuesday 2 February 2021.

The Council would like to receive comments from all interested parties including residents, businesses, community and voluntary groups and those with an interest in the area. The comments submitted during the publicity (consultation) period will be forwarded to the independent examiner who will appraise the plan once he/she is appointed. They will read and assess all the comments received and determine whether any modifications are required to the Neighbourhood Development Plan.

When making your representation, please can you indicate whether you wish to participate in an Examination Public Hearing (should the examiner decide there is a need) and also whether you wish to be notified about the Examiner's Report and the 'making' (adopting) or refusal to make the Holme Valley NDP.

After you have commented

All responses will be publicly available and cannot be treated as confidential (including submitted evidence). All representations will be processed in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation 2018. Anonymous representations will not be accepted.

Subject to the outcome of the independent examination, the plan can progress to referendum. For the Neighbourhood Development Plan to become part of the statutory development plan (and therefore carry the same weight as the Local Plan), 50% plus one of those who vote in the referendum would need to vote in favour of the plan.
