The consultation runs from 20 July to 14 September 2020. 

Comments should be made to the Parish Council by 5.00pm on 14 September. For further details please visit Cassop-cum-Quarrington Parish Council Neighbourhood Plan 2020 or email the Parish Council at ccqneighbourhood@gmail.com.

    A-Z Neighbourhood plan - progress to date

    The list below sets out neighbourhood plans which have progressed beyond the designation stage and are currently active or adopted. There are seven stages that a neighbourhood plan has to go through which are shown on our Neighbourhood planning step by step process webpage. If an area is not listed, it is likely that no neighbourhood planning activity has started for that area.

    If you are interested in pursuing neighbourhood planning we recommend you contact your local parish or town council in the first instance and before contacting us. If you are interested in setting up a neighbourhood forum in an unparished area, please contact us for more information.
