Neighbourhood Plan

Cottingham Neighbourhood Plan

The Planning Co-operative, a locally based planning consultancy, in conjunction with IntegreatPlus, from Sheffield, were appointed by the Parish Council to produce a Neighbourhood Plan for the Parish.

The Plan is be based upon initial research and consultation work carried out in 2013 and 2014

The Neighbourhood Plan takes a closer look, from a community perspective, at the form of development local people would like to see on the various sites identified for future development by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council

In addition, the Neighbourhood Plan will drew up a “Design code”, in consultation with local community representatives, to help improve the quality of new development in the rest of the village, with a particular focus on the village’s Conservation Area.

The Neighbourhood Plan does not seek to alter any of the ERYC’s draft allocations or to identify additional areas for development. Rather, it adds value to the planning process and facilitates development of the various sites by feeding in a local perspective to the planning process.

When completed, the Neighbourhood Plan was subject to examination by a suitably qualified independent person to ensure that it complies with legal requirements and is in line with both national planning policy and the strategic aims of the local development plans produced by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

The Plan was then subject to a referendum within the Parish and was adopted in 2018.

As of July 2021, East Riding Council are currently reviewing the areas allocated for development and the Parish Council, and Neighbourhood Plan, will adapt accordingly.
