Neighbourhood Plan

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. The champions have a dedicated website for the neighbourhood plan.

There are several statutory stages involved in the preparation of a Neighbourhood Plan and the Sprotbrough Neighbourhood Plan has just completed the final stage of consultation which was undertaken by Doncaster Council. Further information relating to this consultation can be found on Doncaster Council's website.

The latest version of the Sprotbrough Neighbourhood Plan can be found below with its supporting documents.

The next stage of the process is the examination of the neighbourhood plan which will be undertaken by an independent planning inspector.

Peter Biggers has been appointed by Doncaster Council, the Parish Council and the steering group to undertake the examination of the Neighbourhood Plan.
