Regulation 14 Public Consultation

Oulton and Woodlesford Neighbourhood Development Plan


Groundwork Funded
In accordance with Neighbourhood Planning Regulation 14, the Oulton and Woodlesford Neighbourhood Forum is undertaking a public consultation and would like to invite comments from organisations and individuals on its Pre-Submission Neighbourhood Development Plan.

The public consultation runs from 8 March 2018 until 19 April 2018.

The Oulton and Woodlesford Neighbourhood Forum has produced a Neighbourhood Development Plan which covers the whole of Oulton and Woodlesford. The Plan contains a vision for the villages along with a set of aims, planning policies and proposals, and community actions to achieve the vision. The planning policies within the Plan seek to protect the character of the villages, with policies guiding new development, notably for housing, business, and greenspace.

Following this consultation, the Plan will be amended and then submitted to Leeds City Council, as required, for a further “Regulation 16” consultation and independent examination. The Plan, if successful at examination, will then proceed to a local referendum. If the Plan receives a majority vote, the Plan will then be ‘made’ and become part of the statutory development plan – the Local Plan - for Leeds. Any planning applications submitted within the boundary will be determined in accordance with this Plan.
