Burghwallis was one of the first parish councils in England to develop and adopt a neighbourhood plan.
This is a subset of the DMBC core strategy plan and sets out the ’Terms and Conditions’ that ideally the residents of Burghwallis would like to control the look and feel of the village. It is a comprehensive document that took the wishes of the village, assessed during public meetings and a referendum into the heart of the document. The full document finalised in February 2016 is lodged with the DMBC can be seen here. Our neighbourhood plan covers the next 12 years until 2028.
