The Harlestone Neighbourhood Development Plan is now made. It passed the community referendum on 20th April 2023 with 95% of the vote in favour. All planning decisions affecting Harlestone Parish must now consider the Harlestone Neighbourhood Development Plan.

The Plan Vision:

By 2030, Harlestone will be a thriving and sustainable rural community where the natural and built environment makes a positive contribution to the agriculture, the landscape, conservation and to the preservation of our heritage.

The vision, objectives, and policies have been developed from the evidence gather during the Neighbourhood Development Plan Survey and are designed to assist in shaping the future of Harlestone. For a full copy of the plan, please follow the link below.
