The first stage in developing a Neighbourhood Plan is to designate the 'Neighbourhood Area' which it will cover. A Neighbourhood Area application was received from Skelton Parish Council on 3 April 2014. After a six-week consultation period we designated Skelton Neighbourhood Area on 1 July 2014. Skelton Parish Council now have the right to produce their own Neighbourhood Plan or Neighbourhood Development Orders.

In line with the regulations, the proposed Neighbourhood Development Order for Greenhollows was submitted to independent examiner Timothy Jones, Barrister, FCIArb. His report, with recommendations to the Council, has been completed.
The Examiner concluded that the proposal for Greenhollows included in the Neighbourhood Development Order does not meet the basic conditions required for the proposal to go forward to a local referendum. This recommendation was considered by Eden's Executive on 7 July 2015, which accepted the recommendation of the Examiner.
