Designation of neighbourhood area

The first formal step in the neighbourhood plan process is to designate a neighbourhood area and define the proposed boundary covered by a plan. In March 2017 Donnington and Muxton Parish Council applied for the designation of a neighbourhood area, the proposed boundary being the whole of the parish boundary area.

A six week consultation ran from 6 April 2017 until 19 May 2017 to bring this application to the attention of people who live, work and/or carry out business in the neighbourhood area. Telford & Wrekin Council approved the designation in June 2017.

Several documents on the neighbourhood area designation can be viewed below. They include Donnington and Muxton Parish Council’s application to designate a neighbourhood area, a map of the neighbourhood planning area, a notice of the application, representations received during the consultation and a notice confirming the neighbourhood area designation.
