New Neighbourhood Area designation for Hampton-in-Arden

Following an application from Hampton-in-Arden Parish Council, a new Neighbourhood Area has been designated. This amends the current Neighbourhood Area to reflect the administrative boundary change that came into effect on 1 April 2019 and will allow the Parish Council to update their Neighbourhood Plan.

The designation can be viewed here.

For the avoidance of doubt, until a new Neighbourhood Plan is ‘made’, the existing Plan policies will continue to apply to the area that was covered by the previous Neighbourhood Area.
