North Lincolnshire Local Plan

Dear Consultee,  


North Lincolnshire Council is preparing a new single Local Plan. It will establish the vision and objectives for the area, allocate sites for housing, employment, retail, leisure, and other forms of development, and will include development management policies up to 2038. As well as setting out where new development will go, the Plan will also include policies which seek to protect and preserve open space, green infrastructure, the historic environment, and environmental assets. Once adopted, it will update and replace the existing planning policy framework for the area.


A public consultation lasting 6 weeks is starting at 5pm on Monday 30 May 2022 on this last stage of the new North Lincolnshire Local Plan, known as the Publication Draft Addendum. The consultation closes at 5pm on Monday 11 July 2022.  


Previous Consultation on the Plan

An Issues & Options consultation exercise was undertaken between late January and March 2018 in order to get the views of local communities and others about the issues that should be covered in the Plan and how these issues might be addressed. A further consultation of the Preferred Options Draft took place between February and March 2020. Together with available evidence and national planning policy, these two stages helped to inform the Publication Draft.


North Lincolnshire Council consulted on the Local Plan Publication Draft between 15 October 2021 and 3 December 2021. Whilst it was anticipated that this would have been the version of the Plan to be submitted to the Secretary of State for independent examination, a number of changes are now proposed to the Plan.


Regulation 19 Publication Draft Addendum Consultation

This document is an Addendum to the North Lincolnshire Local Plan Publication Draft. This consultation no longer seeks views on alternative options but instead presents the opportunity to comment on focussed, proposed changes within a specific remit. The Council will only accept comments on these proposed amendments. 


Representations at this stage should still only be made on the legal compliance and soundness of the proposed changes to the Local Plan. In other words, has the Plan been prepared in accordance with all legal and procedural requirements, and does the Plan meet the prescribed tests of soundness (see attached Guidance Note). A Sustainability Appraisal (SA) and Habitats Regulation Assessment (HRA) of the proposed changes to the Plan accompany this Addendum.  


The easiest and most efficient way to view and provide comments is via the council’s website: www.localPlan.northlincs.gov.uk/localPlan 


A public consultation event is to be held in Barton upon Humber to allow local people and others to speak with a planning officer about the consultation and put forward any queries prior to making a response. The event will be held at Baysgarth School (School Hall) on Monday 20 June 2022 between 4:00pm and 7:15pm.  


The Publication Draft Addendum document can be viewed electronically at Community Hubs and Libraries across North Lincolnshire using the public access computer network. A paper version is available for review at Scunthorpe Central.


Please direct any queries or questions that you may have or from members of the public to the Place Planning Team. The team can be contacted on 01724 296694 or via email at localPlan@northlincs.gov.uk   


All comments should be submitted online or emailed/posted to the Place Planning Team by 5pm on Monday 11 July 2022. 


What happens next? 

The comments received as part of this Addendum consultation, in addition to the comments received to the North Lincolnshire Local Plan Publication Draft consultation, will be submitted to the Secretary of State along with the Plan and supporting documents for consideration at examination.

How to shape where you live;
The Neighbourhood Plan

The 2011 Localism Act grants powers to communities to put together a Neighbourhood Plan for their parish or neighbourhood. This gives communities the power to form and shape development in their area. Neighbourhood Plans must conform with Local Plans and the National Planning Policy Framework. Essentially, Neighbourhood Plans are developed by the local community, voted for in a local referendum and then 'made' by the Local Planning Authority. They normally last for five years before being reviewed. Neighbourhood Plans are able to propose more development, but cannot reduce the amount of development in the area from that agreed in the Local Plan. They can guide where development such as new homes, shops, offices and open space is located, what it looks like and how it is achieved. They can require higher design standards for buildings and associated infrastructure. A Neighbourhood Plan may seek a higher proportion of affordable housing, or enable development to be directed to less valued sites instead of important wildlife sites or community land. They can also identify existing and potential new wildlife areas, hedgerows and wildlife corridors to link them. Neighbourhood Plans have statutory status. This gives them more weight than some other local planning documents and makes them an important tool to help to protect local wildlife. Neighbourhood Plans provide an excellent opportunity to improve the local environment, including protecting and enhancing existing assets, such as local parks, nature reserves and other green spaces as well as creating new habitats. Local Planning Authorities have a duty to support and are obliged by law to help people draw up their neighbourhood plans. The formal process for neighbourhood planning is set out in the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2012/637/contents/made).

Neighbourhood Plan

Bottesford Town Council voted at the July meeting to investigate having a Neighbourhood plan. 
On 14 September 2020 an application to start a Neighbourhood Plan was completed and sent to North Lincolnshire Council for the area of Bottesford & Yaddlethorpe.
This page will keep you informed of our progress. (see below updates)
If you are interested in taking part of the Neighbourhood Planning team please email the clerk@bottesford.org

Update 8 December 2020

The application by Bottesford Town Council to be designated as a neighbourhood area has been approved by North Lincolnshire Council  

Designation of the neighbourhood area is the first stage in the neighbourhood planning process and will enable the Town Council to start preparing a plan with their local community.
