About the Plan
Cusop Parish Council first decided to create a neighbourhood plan for Cusop back in 2012. After five years of community consultations, research and drafting, an independent examination, and finally a local referendum, the Cusop Neighbourhood Development Plan 2011-2031 was adopted by Herefordshire Council on 2nd December 2017. A copy of the adopted Plan can be downloaded here:
Now that the Plan has been adopted, it becomes a statutory plan and carries equal weight to the Herefordshire Local Plan - Core Strategy and is part of the Local Development Framework. This means that it will be used in making decisions on planning applications by Herefordshire Council.
As background information, various documents produced during the creation as the Plan can still be downloaded from the Project Documents page. Herefordshire Council's website also includes a page of information about the creation of the Cusop Plan here: https://www.herefordshire.gov.uk/directory_record/3049/cusop_neighbourhood_development_plan
