Neighbourhood Area designated

Our Parish Council is preparing a Neighbourhood Plan for the Parish and the first step was to seek designation of the Neighbourhood Area. An application for the designation of the whole parish (as shown on the map) was received by Scarborough Borough Council on 8 June 2016.

On the 12 July 2016, Scarborough Borough Council formally designated the Cayton Neighbourhood Area. Following consultation on the Neighbourhood Area application made by Cayton Parish Council, Scarborough Borough Council is satisfied that the ‘Area’ proposed by Cayton Parish Council (the parish boundary) is appropriate for designation.

We are to start developing our neighbourhood plan and we shall be contacting residents in the next few months.
