Serving the people of Steeton and Eastburn

Adoption of Neighbourhood Plan

Following a positive result in the referendum held in the Steeton with Eastburn Parish and Silsden Town Council areas on 6th May 2021, City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council (CBMDC) has adopted (made) the Steeton with Eastburn and Silsden Neighbourhood Development Plan as part of the statutory development for the district on 7th June 2021. This decision was made in line with provisions of section 38A(4)(a) of the Planning & Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 (as amended by the Neighbourhood Planning Act 2017) and Regulation 19 of Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (as amended). This means that the plan will be given full weight in determining planning applications within the Steeton with Eastburn and Silsden neighbourhood area. The adopted (made) version of the Steeton with Eastburn & Silsden Neighbourhood Development Plan and decision statement can be viewed on/downloaded from Bradford Council website (copy of statement below), and copies of the plan and decision statement are also being made available at Britannia House (Customer Service Centre), Keighley Town Hall and Silsden Library over the next few days. They will also be provided to the Steeton with Eastburn Parish Council to allow access to local residents.
