Proposed Neighbourhood Plan Document

Over the past four years Burley Parish Council has been working to produce a Neighbourhood Plan to enable residents to have greater say over how Burley should grow and develop over the next few years. Burley are the first council in the Bradford to put forward a Neighbourhood Plan, so the process has been somewhat protracted since we have had to forge new processes within Bradford that will help the 9 other councils that are following on behind.

The plan received an 80% vote in favour from residents at the referendum held on 3rd May 2018 and will now become part of the statutory development plan for the Bradford District. Planning applications will still be determined by Bradford in the normal way, but now taking into account policies set out in our Neighbourhood Plan.

The Burley-in-Wharfedale Neighbourhood Development Plan and supporting documents are available on the Bradford web site here
