May/June 2017 - Consultation

The Consultation is now finished and the Neighbourhood Planning Group and Parish Council would like to thank all those individuals and organisations who have taken the time to respond.

The Group is will now consider all responses and make any changes to the Neighbourhood Plan that it believes are required before passing the Plan to City of York Council for it to conduct a further six week Formal Consultation.

Once any changes have been made the revised Plan will be available via the links on the right. The original version is still available under the heading "Archive Documents" on the right.

Following the Formal Consultation, the Plan, together with all feedback received by City of York Council, will to be sent to an Independent Examiner to decide whether the Plan meets all the requirements to go forward to a Referendum of Copmanthorpe residents. If the majority of those voting approve the Plan it passes into Planning Law for Copmanthorpe and will help to control development over the next fifteen years and beyond.


The Plan

Copmanthorpe Parish is a distinct and historic settlement within the York Green Belt, offering a safe and attractive place in which to live, providing a range of commercial, transport and social facilities for all sections of the local community.

The Policies of the Copmanthorpe Neighbourhood Plan will be extremely important in deciding planning applications which affect the Parish and the village. Policies included in this plan are aimed at managing the future growth of Copmanthorpe, especially through new housing development, and at preserving the character and identity of the village and the surrounding countryside of the Parish.

There are approximately 1,700 houses within the boundary of the Parish with a population of about 5,000. There are a number of small businesses operating within the Parish and the village is predominantly bounded by high grade farming land.

The Neighbourhood Plan will give the community the opportunity to influence how the village will look in years to come in terms of the type and location of development and how the facilities and transport links of the village can be sustained.
