Trawden Forest Neighbourhood Plan

What has happened so far...

A public consultation of the draft Neighbourhood Plan was carried out between Monday 27th November 2017 and Monday 8th January 2018. The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group will now consider the responses to the consultation and make any necessary changes to the plan before submitting it to Pendle Council for further consultation and Examination. Further information and the consultation documents can be found on the Neighbourhod Plan pages of the Trawden Forest Parish Council website

Trawden Forest Parish Council has carried out a number of consultation exercises over the last year to help formulate the Neighbourhood Plan for the parish. This included an event at the Trawden Garden Festival in July.  

Trawden Forest Parish Council has submitted a formal written notification to Pendle Council stating its intention to prepare a neighbourhood plan. 

A public consultation was held between 22nd July 2016 and 19th August 2016 giving people a chance to consider and comment on the proposed boundary for the neighbourhood plan area. Five responses were received by the Council to the consultation with the majority supporting the designation of the plan area. The comments are available to view below.  

At the meeting of the Council's Executive on Thursday 25th August 2016 it was resolved that the Parish area for Trawden Forest be designated as a Neighbourhood Area for the purposes of Neighbourhood Planning. The public notice confirming the designation can be viewed below. 

The Parish council can now start the formal process of preparing a Neighbourhood Plan. Further details of their progress can be found on the Trawden Forest Parish Council website.
