STAINFORTH NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN
Stainforth Town Council is currently working in partnership with Pegasus Group to develop a Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) for the town council area of Stainforth up to 2035. It is being prepared building on the responses to the public consultation on the Issues and Options document from March to April 2019. In addition a Neighbourhood Development Order has been prepared for the former colliery site.
NDPs are planning policy documents, and once made (adopted) by the local planning authority (here, Doncaster Borough Council) they are used to help determine planning applications in the area. They are therefore powerful tools for communities who wish to have a stronger influence in planning decisions.
The Draft Plan sets out a draft vision and objectives and the emerging draft planning policies and site allocations for Stainforth. The planning policies and proposals are grouped under the following planning themes:
Protecting and Enhancing Local Mining Heritage
Improving Housing Choice
Improving Accessibility for All
Supporting Health and Wellbeing and
Local Development Opportunities.
