Front cover of the Church Fenton consultation document

Do you live, work or visit Church Fenton? Are you interested in influencing the way the village develops over the coming years?

If the answer is “Yes” then we want to hear your views on the draft Church Fenton Neighbourhood Development Plan. The Parish Council have drawn up the new draft plan for the village.  You have until 5pm on 12 February 2021 to send your comments. 

Copies of the plan can be viewed online at: https://www.selby.gov.uk/neighbourhood-planning or on the Church Fenton Parish Council webpage: http://www.planchurchfenton.org.uk

Send your comments to us by:

  • Completing the on-line comment form. This has now closed as the consultation has finished. 
  • Email: localplan@selby.gov.uk
  • Post: Selby District Council, The Civic Centre, Doncaster Road, Selby YO8 9FT

The draft plan and the comments received will then be considered by an independent examiner at an independent examination. The Inspector will determine whether the draft plan can then proceed to the referendum stage later in 2021.

Deputy Leader of the Council, Lead Member for Place Shaping and District and Parish Councillor for Church Fenton, Cllr Richard Musgrave, said.

“I encourage every person who lives, works and visits Church Fenton to get involved and take part in this consultation. People’s views can really make a difference.

“This Neighbourhood Development Plan will give the local community the power to develop a shared vision with the Council. The community will set out where new developments should be located within the Church Fenton area. As well as having a say on what those buildings should look like and what infrastructure should be provided to support the new developments.”
