Welcome to the Walton Neighbourhood Plan Website
The Walton Neighbourhood Plan area comprises the village of Walton, Wakefield, West Yorkshire and its surrounding countryside. Walton is proud of its heritage and through the neighbourhood plan we hope to shape any future plans for our village and have a real say on what happens on our doorstep.
Our Neighbourhood Plan went to Referendum on 3rd December 2015 and 96% of voters said "YES" making the Walton Neighbourhood Plan the first in Wakefield, and first in Yorkshire.
