Next Step for Longridge Neighbourhood Plan

Published Monday, 19 February 2018

Members of the public are invited to have their say on a proposed neighbourhood plan for Longridge.

Communities have powers to draw up neighbourhood plans influencing the future of where they live or work.

Parish and town councils take the lead on drawing up the plans, supported by planning authorities, which are usually borough councils.

Longridge is already designated a ‘neighbourhood area’ and now Ribble Valley Borough Council has received a submission from Longridge Town Council for a neighbourhood plan for the town.

If approved, the plan will become part of the Local Development Framework and taken into account when determining planning applications.

The plan and supporting documents can be viewed at, the Ribble Valley Borough Council Offices in Church Walk, Clitheroe; Longridge and Clitheroe Libraries, and the Longridge Old Station Buildings.

People can have their say until 5pm on Friday, 23 March, after which the responses will be considered by an independent examiner, who will recommend whether or not the proposed plan should proceed to a local referendum.

Further details on how to take part in the consultation are available at or 01200 425111.
