The North of England has been relatively slow in taking up the chance to prepare neighbourhood plans.

But in the last few days we have had moves from a number of parishes to get things moving by seeking a neighbourhood planning area designation.

So in Bradford Ilkley Parish Council’s application is being consulted on until the 27th of August.

Whilst over in Leeds a number of parishes have made similar bids:

Aberford, Bardsey-cum-rigton, Barwick in Elmet and Scholes, Bramham, Linton, Thorp Arch, Walton, and Wetherby

Consultation Period – 25th May 2012 to 6th July 2012

Consultation Period – 1st June 2012 to 13th July 2012

Boston Spa 
Consultation Period – 15th June 2012 to 27th July 2012

Consultation Period – 22nd June 2012 to 3rd August 2012

Consultation Period – 29th June 2012 to 10th August 2012
