Neighbourhood planning gives communities direct power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of their local area. Neighbourhood planning provides a powerful set of tools for local people to plan for the types of development to meet their community's needs and where the ambition of the neighbourhood is aligned with the strategic needs and priorities of the wider local area.
Further information on neighbourhood planning can be found on the Governments website.
A neighbourhood plan for Sprotbrough is currently being prepared by a group of local residents, called the Sprotbrough Neighbourhood Champions, supported by the Parish Council and Doncaster Councillor for Sprotbrough, Cynthia Ransome.
