Brief description

The Cottingham Neighbourhood Plan and Design Guide 2015-2029, prepared by Cottingham Parish Council, has been submitted to East Riding of Yorkshire Council for examination. The council must now publicise the plan proposal and accompanying documents and seek comments.

The Cottingham Neighbourhood Plan area covers the whole of the Civil Parish of Cottingham and provides general policies and a design guide for development in Cottingham. The Neighbourhood Plan also includes a series of ?concept statements? for each allocated site set out in the East Riding Local Plan to help guide developers towards a design solution that accord with community aspirations.?

Important issues, on which the neighbourhood plan provides further planning policy and guidance, include:

?Concept Statements for Cottingham?s Local Plan Allocations.

?Design Quality & Review of new development in Cottingham in accordance with design guidance set out in the plan.

?Sustainable Drainage within Cottingham.

?Small Scale Commercial Activities.

?Green Networks (establishment and improvement of cycle and footpath networks across the parish).

?Shops & Services (the development of small scale shops and services on sites that are outside of the village centre).

?Housing Mix (including a target that an eighth of new properties should be of single-storey construction).

?Key Open Areas (protecting areas of undeveloped open land from future development).

?Car Parking.?

Once adopted, the neighbourhood plan will become an important consideration in determining relevant planning applications within the Cottingham Neighbourhood Area.
