YDF Neighbourhood Development Plan

Yateley Town Council have agreed with Hart District Council to prepare a Neighbourhood Development Plan, the boundary which will be the civil parish of Yateley. The Plan will cover the areas of Darby Green and Frogmore and it will be called the Yateley Darby Green & Frogmore (YDF) Neighbourhood Development Plan.


The provision of Neighbourhood Development Plans was introduced by the Localism Act 2011 and are designed to give local communities a say in how their area should be developed. This has been further supported by the introduction of the Neighbourhood Planning Act 2017. Planners would have a statutory duty to give the NDP material consideration as part of the Local Development Plan when assessing planning applications.


Under the legislation Yateley Town Council are the qualifying body and they have appointed a Steering Group to prepare and deliver the NDP.
