Park ward Neighbourhood Forum and Development Plan

Park ward Neighbourhood Forum and Development Plan


Results and Actions Taken Published


The consultation seeks views on two applications affecting Park Ward. The first is for the designation of a formal Neighbourhood Forum for Park Ward. (Note this is quite different from the Ward Forum run by the Council). The second seeks the designation of Park Ward as an area under which a Neighbourhood Development Plan would be prepared. These powers are new and derive from the Localism Act 2011, and amendments made to Section 61 of the Town & County Panning Act 1990.
