A Neighbourhood Plan gives a community the power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood and influence the way their area develops and grows.
Adopted Neighbourhood Plans become part of the Development Plan and are used to assess
planning applications in the area which the plan covers. Ryedale has one neighbourhood plan in
production: Malton and Norton Neighbourhood Plan. Find out about Malton and Norton’s Neighbourhood Plan, including what area is covered and how to stay informed.
Earlier this year the draft plan (Regulation 14) of the Malton and Norton Neighbourhood Plan, with sustainability Appraisal/Strategic Environmental Assessment and Habitats Regulations Assessment was subject to public consultation. The findings of that consultation are currently being considered by the Malton and Norton Neighbourhood Plan Working Party.
Following this consultation, the plan will be amended and then submitted to us 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 district council will adopt the plan.
