Your community can influence the future of its neighbourhood by preparing a Neighbourhood Plan that sets out your vision for the local area and general planning policies to guide developments. This can help determine where new homes and businesses can be built, and what they should look like.
Once a Neighbourhood Plan is made, it becomes part of the statutory Development Plan, and we will consult it to determine whether to approve proposed developments.
Follow these steps to create a Neighbourhood Plan for your area
Neighbourhood planning requires a substantial commitment. If you're considering taking on this work for your community, we strongly advise you to email us at email@example.com, to get a clear idea of what's involved, and for advice to help you get started.
