Neighbourhood Development Plan


AT NDP Front PageAppleton Thorn is developing its own Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP). Officially titled Appleton Parish Thorn Ward NDP, it is the first to be developed in Warrington.

A group of Appleton Thorn residents has worked with Appleton Parish Council to ensure we get a balanced and thorough document.

The plan, now submitted in its final form to Warrington Borough Council, will govern the form and type of development that can take place within the Thorn Ward until 2027.

The process of developing a NDP involves a number of stages, described on the NDP Process page. The first period of consultation has taken place and some amendments have been made as a result. The Borough Council will conduct the second period of consultation commencing Monday 30th June.

Following this consultation the NDP will be submitted to an external examiner, along with any observations from interested parties, for appraisal.

The submitted version of the NDP may be found on the Appleton Parish Council website.

You are encouraged to read it.
