Alford Neighbourhood Development Plan

Alford Town Council has agreed to produce a Neighbourhood Development Plan. The Town Council has set up at Steering Group to work on the plan.

The Steering Group is made up of council members, local residents and members from the local business community. The Steering Group is being advised and supported by our officers.

In the coming months there will be a series of public consultation events so that all the community can get involved in the process. The public consultation events will help encourage local people to have a greater say over the type and location of growth in their areas.

This is a unique opportunity for the people of Alford to plan the future of their town.


Application for designation of a Neighbourhood Area

Alford Town Council applied to East Lindsey District Council to designate the parish of Alford as a Neighbourhood Area in April 2012, in accordance with the Neighbourhood Planning Regulations 2012. In accordance with those regulations the matter was advertised but unfortunately no record of that advertisement is available. Therefore this advert is to comply with the regulations in ensuring that consultation is carried out on the area for designation.

If this designation is made no alternative plan may be designated for that Neighbourhood Area until that designation expires or is withdrawn.

Consultation on the proposed area designated will run from the 28th February to the 28th March 2018. You can comment by emailing the Local Plans Team at or send a response in writing to the address at the bottom of this advert.

The applications can be viewed along with an accompanying map with the proposed neighbourhood area outlined on the Councils website at
