Clifford Neighbourhood Plan is made
The Decision Statement affirming the adoption of the Clifford Neighbourhood Plan can be downloaded here You can also view copies of these at Boston Spa and Wetherby libraries, Clifford Village Hall and The Albion in Clifford.
This means that the Clifford Neighbourhood Plan is now a legally binding planning document covering new development within the parish. It also means that a larger proportion of Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) from new development in the parish will be available for direct investment to improve facilities for Clifford parishioners.
The adoption of the Clifford Neighbourhood Plan follows nearly five year's hard work by Clifford volunteers, lots of feedback from Clifford residents and other people with an interest in the parish - and an very decisive majority "yes" vote in the referendum.
The results from the referendum held on 26th January 2017 on whether to accept the Clifford Neighbourhood Plan were:-
YES = 290 ( = 91.8%)
NO = 26 ( = 8.2%)
Information is also available from the Leeds City Council web site.

Surveys & feedback
In 2012, we carried out a Household Survey questionnaire and Open Day to get a basic understanding about Clifford parishioners and their views and aspirations for the parish.
In 2013 we held another Open Day where parishioners could see and comment on the proposals we'd developed based on the 2012 surveys and further research.
In Autumn 2014, we carried out a two-stage pre-consultation survey to find out the level of community support for the proposed policies to be included in the Clifford Neighbourhood Plan. This consisted of a short questionnaire sent to every household in the parish and an Open Day where people could see more detailed background information and give more detailed feedback.
You'll find a lot more information about all these counsultations via the links below.
