Harewood Parish has now been designated a neighbourhood area. This designation will formally allow the preparation of a neighbourhood plan. Further details will be added in due course.
The development of a Neighbourhood Plan for the parish is being facilitated by Harewood Parish Council with help from volunteers across the community. The Parish Council believes that this is a real opportunity for the community to have some ownership on future planning policy for the parish and to work with Leeds City Council to achieve this.
Through the creation of the Plan, local people will have the opportunity to help shape future policies for land use and the scale of development; such as where new homes, shops, offices, employment sites should be built and what they should look like.
The Neighbourhood Plan for the parish, subject to passing the formal tests, a local referendum and examination, it will become part of the local planning framework.
