Following the consultation, the plan will be assessed by an independent examiner before being subject to a local referendum. If adopted, the plan will form part of the Local Plan and be used to guide local planning decisions.

Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Climate Action, Active Travel and Housing, Coun Scott Patient, said: “Innovation and resilience has been at the heart of Todmorden since the town’s major growth at the time of the Industrial Revolution.

"This willingness to adapt to a changing world, whilst retaining the qualities which make the town special, is also key to the draft Todmorden Neighbourhood Plan.

“The plan has been developed by Todmorden Town Council, in consultation with local people and businesses.

"It looks to ensure that new development, as part of necessary growth, is appropriate and sustainable and should complement and reinforce the existing character of the town.

“This consultation will enable people to have their say on the plan and its proposals.

"The feedback will then be collated and submitted with the plan to an independent examination before progressing to a local referendum.”
