Welcome to the Penistone NDP

January 2016 saw the start of the work on our Penistone Neighbourhood Development Plan. Throughout the course of the project Penistone Town Council have been conducting research, asking your opinion, speaking to our consultants and slowly but surely compiling the Penistone NDP.


On July 11th 2019 the public was invited to take part in a referendum to approve or reject the Penistone Neighbourhood Development Plan: 89% of the electorate approved the plan. A PDF copy of the official declaration can be seen here:
Declaration of Penistone NDP Poll Results.

For reference, the referendum version of the Penistone Neighbourhood Development Plan can be seen here.

What is an "NDP"?

A Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) concerns the Development of our area in many ways and can be used to influence housing, business development and development of green space & leisure facilities; it’s not about litter & dog fouling.

The Penistone NDP will be created, and will belong to, the people of Penistone and the surrounding area. It is for all of us, whether we live in Millhouse Green, Thurlstone, Penistone, Springvale, Hoylandswaine, Cubley or in smaller outlying areas.
