Neighbourhood Plan for the parish of Barwick in Elmet and Scholes


The Barwick in Elmet and Scholes Neighbourhood Plan has been prepared by the Barwick in Elmet and Scholes Neighbourhood Plan Steering Committee on behalf of Barwick in Elmet and Scholes Parish Council. The journey commenced on 7th November 2011 when the Parish Council resolved to commission a Neighbourhood Plan and on 7th November 2016 passed a resolution to submit the Plan to Leeds City Council for progress to examination and referendum.
