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 will be conducting research, asking your opinion, speaking to our consultants and slowly but surely compiling the Penistone NDP, ready for assessment and a public referendum before publication in 2017.
Why “Neighbourhood Plan”?
It’s called a Neighbourhood Development Plan because it’s about the Development of our area in many ways, not just housing.
An NDP can be used to influence not only housing but business development, 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 – the Parish of Penistone.
It’s for all of us, whether we live in Millhouse Green, Thurlstone, Penistone, Springvale, Hoylandswaine, Cubley or in smaller outlying areas.
Find out more in the About section.
All your views are important so please attend any publicised meetings and give us your views by completing any surveys issued.
