The Cottingham Neighbourhood Plan and Design Guide 2015-2029 was formally ‘made’ (adopted) by East Riding of Yorkshire Council following the announcement of a positive referendum. The referendum was held on 15 February 2018 and 92.18% of those who voted were in favour of the plan. The Cottingham Neighbourhood Plan is the council's first of its kind. A Neighbourhood Plan which has been made becomes a part of the planning authority's statutory development plan. Applications for planning permission must be determined in accordance with the development plan unless material considerations indicate otherwise. With a neighbourhood plan, communities can create a vision and planning policies for the use and development of land in their neighbourhood.
