Was there any consultation on the Pocklington neighbourhood area application?

Yes. A six week consultation on the proposed Pocklington neighbourhood area was held between 13 January and 24 February 2014 so that people living, working and carrying out business in Pocklington could let us know their views on the proposed area. 

The majority of respondents were supportive of designating the proposed boundary as a neighbourhood area. The comments received to the consultation can be found in Appendix B of the Cabinet report, available to download above.
