Harrold NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN

Neighbourhood Planning in England was introduced by the Localism Act 2011 and it enables local communities to be closely involved in the decisions that affect them.

 

A Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group, established by the parish council, has worked hard to develop a Neighbourhood Development Plan for the area that takes into account the views of the residents of the parish. Harrold Parish Council would like to sincerely thank the Steering Group for their immense contribution and considerable commitment to this important project since its inauguration in 2015.

 

The Harrold Neighbourhood Plan has been submitted to Bedford Borough Council for a compliance check; an independent examiner will then be appointed. If that stage is successful then we will look to hold a village referendum to formally adopt the plan as soon as possible – May 2021 is currently the earliest opportunity for this.

 

The Harrold Neighbourhood Development Plan and all related documentation from the preparation of the plan are available below.
