NDP References

There are many guidelines and documents that the NDP must conform to. Other documents  are generated during the development of the NDP. This page contains the more important references.

Terms of Reference

The NDP operates to a set of Terms of Reference.

Herefordshire Council’s Core Strategy

Neighbourhood Development Plans need to conform to Herefordshire Council’s Core Strategy which lays down planning regulations which apply to the whole of the county.

The references below point to Herefordshire Council’s website showing the area in which the Core Strategy is discussed. It is a weighty document and gives more information than is required to understand our NDP. The most interesting section for us are pages 103-116 which discuss Rural Areas.

Strategic Planning Policies

Neighbourhood Development Plans must meet a set of basic conditions in order to proceed to the referendum and be made.  One of these is that the Plan is in general conformity with the strategic policies contained in the development plan for the area.  In Herefordshire, this means the policies of the Herefordshire Local Plan Core Strategy 2011-2031, adopted by Herefordshire Council (HC) in October 2015.
