Sturton Ward Neighbourhood Plan


The initial Sturton Ward Neighbourhood Plan was formally 'made' by Bassetlaw District Council following the Referendum held on 11 February 2016. Work to review the Neighbourhood Plan commenced in 2018, including an updated and enhanced evidence base, and the inclusion of site-specific housing allocations. The reviewed Neighbourhood Plan was formally adopted by Bassetlaw District Council following a successful referendum on 11 November 2021. The Neighbourhood Plan forms part of the statutory Local Development Plan for Bassetlaw and shall be used when either applying for planning permission or determining planning applications within the Neighbourhood Area.
