Your views are sought to help build a Neighbourhood Plan for Sprotbrough. Neighbourhood Planning is about local people deciding how their communities should develop. It offers residents who know and care about their area a fantastic opportunity to get involved in building and shaping their surroundings, and gives them more control and influence than they have ever had before. How would you like Sprotbrough to look in 5, 10 or 15 years time?
The Neighbourhood Plan will provide a set of statutory planning policies for the development of Sprotbrough. It must comply with national planning guidance and local policies made by Doncaster MBC. By doing this the policies in the Neighbourhood Plan must be taken into account when any planning application in Sprotbrough is considered.

Sprotbrough is a distinct village which has links to the urban town centre but which is also surrounded by green spaces. By producing a Neighbourhood Plan it is this uniqueness that we wish to protect, but also to support sympathetic development to ensure the whole village remains sustainable and that we keep those things which we value. Sustainable communities are places where people want to live and work, now and in the future. They are safe and inclusive, well planned, well built, well run, offer equality of opportunity and provide good services to all.
We welcome individual replies from different members of the family, if appropriate.
This is the form that was originally used to ascertain the community’s views. Please do not fill it in and return, the date for completing the questionnaire is passed. Should you wish to make any comments please do so via the consultation procedure.
