Middleton St George Neighbourhood Area Regulation 6

In January 2019, Middleton St George Parish Council applied to Darlington Borough Council for a new Neighbourhood Area to reflect the changes in the parish boundary and to pursue the preparation of a Neighbourhood Development Plan. The boundary changes came about via a Community Governance Review in 2016. The Parish Council are proposing a Neighbourhood Area of the new parish area and excluding land at Durham Tees Valley Airport. Even though this land at the airport falls within the parish boundary it is considered inappropriate for Durham Tees Valley Airport to be included in the Neighbourhood Area due to its strategic importance. 

In accordance with Regulation 6 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012, Darlington Borough Council would like to invite comments from organisations and individuals on the proposed Neighbourhood Area. The consultation period is taking place from 13th February 2019 to 29th March 2019.
