Allerthorpe Parish Council

Following the public hearing we have received the examiners report and incorporated the few recommendations he suggested into our Final Plan and that is ready to go forward to a referendum to see our final plan please click on it in the documents tab on the right of this page.



After the formal public consultation in January/February this year, the next step in the plans progress is for the Plan to be examined by an Independent Examiner  to check it meets the requirements of the ERYC local plan and other legislation. We have agreed with the appointment of an Independent Examiner who is in the process of examining our plan.

Park Leisure strongly oppose our plan which is evident by their 766 page objection, in anticipation that the Examiner may require a public hearing we managed to gain grant support to pay for an expert consultant to assist us with a potential hearing.

As expected the examiner would like to have a public hearing and this will be held in Allerthorpe Village Hall on Monday 16th September 2019 at 10.30am

Although this is a meeting open to the public there will be only two people from ERYC, Park Leisure & Allerthorpe Parish Council allowed to speak.

The Independent Examiner will ask questions to understand fully the Leisure & Tourism policy within our plan and its implications

It is envisaged the hearing could last up to 3-4 hours.

Please come along and show your support for a plan that will give some control of how Allerthorpe will develop in the future.

Following the pre-submission consultation carried out in April / May 2018 we have submitted our Neighbourhood Plan to the ERYC for them to arrange for their own formal consultation. 

Neighbourhood Plan Open Day 25th November 2017

Thank You everyone for coming to the Village hall on the 25th November to see our progress with the Neighbourhood plan.

It is very Important that we have as many views as possible so we have added to the document sheets a power point file showing the draft policies of the plan and there is a comment sheet you can print off and tick the policies you support or otherwise and give any comments you wish to make.

Please let us know your views as the Plan must reflect your views for the future of the parish.


Neighbourhood Planning Group

 In July 2017 the Neighbourhood Planning group was formed to progress  our development of the Allerthorpe Neighbourhood Plan.

Although the plan is still in a draft stage it has been compiled from the information that residents and business owners provided in the questionnaire circulated in March 2016.

We would appreciate the Residents and business owners within Allerthorpe Parish to view the latest draft of our Neighbourhood Plan to enable further development of the plan to take it to the next stage.

We are having an Open Day at the Allerthorpe Village Hall on Saturday 25th of November 2017 between 10.00am and 16.00pm where you can view the current version of the plan and see in detail the planning policies we want to have in force.

There will be members of the planning group available all day to listen to any improvements or concerns you may have please come and help decide the future of our village.

Since April 2012, local communities have been able to produce Neighbourhood Plans for their local area, putting in place planning policies for the future development and growth of the neighbourhood;  this all part of the government initiative, under the Localism Act 2011, to place greater planning control locally.

What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

A Neighbourhood Plan sets out the vision, aims, policies and proposals for the future development of a neighbourhood.  If adopted, the Neighbourhood Plan will be part of the statutory development for the area.  This means that the East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) and Planning Inspectors will have to take the plan into account when making planning decisions.  So a Neighbourhood Plan will carry more weight than, say, a Parish or Community Plan.

Who produces a Neighbourhood Plan?

The Localism Act 2011 says that where there is a Town or Parish Council, then that Council is the qualifying body for leading a neighbourhood plan.  So for Allerthorpe it is the Parish Council.

Why are you telling me?

This is your opportunity to be involved in the development of your community.  What would you like Allerthorpe to look like in 20 years’ time?  What sort of local community would you like your children to inherit?  Do you want Allerthorpe to be bigger?  Do you think that Allerthorpe is big enough?  Should Allerthorpe keep its essentially rural nature? 

Community engagement is necessary and important; partly because it is a statutory requirement (included in the Localism Act), but also because it achieves better informed outcomes – after all you know your own community best.  The Parish Council wants you to take part in drawing up the Neighbourhood Plan.

What is the first step in the process?

Allerthorpe Parish Council has decided to produce a Neighbourhood Plan and the first step in the process is for a ‘neighbourhood area’ to be identified.  The Parish Council has identified its administrative borders as the appropriate area and has applied to ERYC for approval of the proposed boundary.  As part of the approval process ERYC has to carry out a public consultation exercise before putting the request before their Cabinet for a decision.  The consultation period is scheduled to run from 2 September 2013 for six weeks.
