Whitley Parish Plan

In 2004 the Government and Countryside Agency required every Parish Council in England to conduct a survey in their community. The objective of the survey was to give a voice to the community and people living within it, to identify how they see their community develop (Transport, Leisure, Housing etc.) and deal with the issues that they consider really important.

Whitley Council undertook this survey in 2005 and published its findings during 2006. Since publication the Parish Plan has been used on numerous occasions to inform and influence local government decisions and obtaining grants for local community groups.

In 2007 a short report was produced to review the plan's objectives.

A NYCC Transport Strategy, showing improved safety features through Whitley, was never implemented.
