No. The East Riding Local Plan will continue to allocate specific sites for development in Cottingham. However, the Neighbourhood Development Plan will include 'concept statements' for each of the allocated sites set out in the East Riding Local Plan to help guide future developers towards a design solution that accords with community aspirations. The Neighbourhood Development Plan will also provide general policies for development in Cottingham and a design guide.
The Cottingham neighbourhood area was formally designated at the council meeting of 12 June 2013. This followed a recommendation by cabinet on 9 April 2013 after a period of public consultation.
