Public consultation on the

Cottingham Neighbourhood Plan and

Design Guidance 2015 – 2019



The Cottingham Neighbourhood Plan, prepared by Cottingham Parish Council, has been submitted to East Riding of Yorkshire Council for examination. The council is now required to formally consult on Cottingham Parish Council’s plan proposal and accompanying documents. Any comments will be submitted alongside the plan to an independent examiner who will conduct an examination into the plan. This will test whether it meets certain tests specified by the Government, before the plan can progress to a local referendum.

Consultation will run, from Monday, 22 May to Monday, 3 July. Comments on the plan should be received on or before Monday, 3 July 2017.

Neighbourhood plans provide more locally specific planning policy, detailed advice and guidance for the determination of planning applications within the defined area. Once adopted, the neighbourhood plan will become an important consideration in determining relevant planning applications within the Cottingham Neighbourhood Area.

Important issues, on which the neighbourhood plan provides further planning policy and guidance, include:

    • concept statements for Cottingham’s local plan allocations

    • design quality and review of new development in Cottingham in accordance with design guidance set out in the plan

    • sustainable drainage within Cottingham

    • small scale commercial activities

    • green networks (establishment and improvement of cycle and footpath networks across the parish)

    • shops and services (the development of small scale shops and services on sites that are outside of the village centre)

    • housing mix (including a target that an eighth of new properties should be of single-storey construction)

    • key open areas (protecting areas of undeveloped open land from future development)

    • car parking.
