Greatham Rural Plan

producing a Neighbourhood Plan for the rural area of Hartlepool Borough

G in B 1Greatham Parish Council is working in partnership with Hart, Elwick and Dalton Piercy Parish Councils and Newton Bewley Parish Meeting to produce a Neighbourhood Plan for the rural area of Hartlepool Borough - Hartlepool Rural Plan.

Neighbourhood Planning is a way for communities to decide on the future of the place where they live and work that was introduced as part of the Localism Act 2011. We feel it is important that the voices of those living and working in the rural communities are heard. To this end a number of consultation exercises have and will be undertaken with residents, businesses and other interested parties.

A plan containing policies for the future of the rural area will be developed by the Parish Councils based on this consultation. This will become part of the planning system with real legal weight if approved by a referendum of the electors in the area covered by the plan.
