|ILKLEY'S NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN|
WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT ILKLEY
Ilkley Parish Council is seeking to create a Neighbourhood Plan which helps explore how to provide much-needed local housing, support high street shops, develop local job opportunities and provide local amenities that meet the needs of our local community.
The Neighbourhood Plan provides you with the opportunity to identify key issues for Ilkley and shape how future planned growth will look and where it might go, but it is not a tool to stop development.
The Neighbourhood Plan will bring the community together to share ideas and build consensus about needs and priorities for Ilkley. The Plan is important for everyone! Ilkley residents must vote at a referendum to adopt it and if people vote in favour it will then become a legal document whereby any decisions on future planning applications will be required to be made in accordance with the Neighbourhood Plan.
The Parish Council conducted a questionnaire which had over 1000 responses. A public exhibiton was held in May to display the findings of the questionnaire and also to give members of the public a chance to meet with potential developers of housing and other organisations who are involved with the Neighbourhood Plan such as Ilkley Civic Society and Ilkley Design Statement Group.
