Welcome to the Horncastle Neighbourhood Development Plan (HNDP)

Our Vision:

“To preserve and enhance the essential nature of Horncastle; to encourage sustainable new residential and commercial developments; and to improve the infrastructure and community facilities for the benefit of the residents of the town and surrounding villages.”

Welcome! In January 2013 a Steering Group was formed to create the

Horncastle Neighbourhood Development Plan (HNDP)

A Neighbourhood Development Plan is a planning document that, when approved, will guide the future development of the area. That means it is about the use and development of land and associated social, economic and environmental issues. The Steering Group are local people who are deeply interested in and committed to a bright and prosperous future for the town. We are not part of either East Lindsey District Council or Horncastle Town Council. It’s a whole new approach to planning which recognises that the best people to say where future housing, business and community-related developments should go are the residents of the parish of Horncastle.

On the 18th of May 2016 East Lindsay District Council agreed to ‘Make’ the Horncastle Neighbourhood Plan pursuant to the provisions of section 38(A)(4) of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004.

The Horncastle Neighbourhood Development Plan covers many  aspects of the future development of our town. The Horncastle Neighbourhood Plan now forms part of that authority’s Development Plan, meaning that it will be a material consideration when deciding development proposals within the area covered by the Plan.
