Neighbourhood planning provides powerful tools for you to get the right types of development for your community. It also ensures that your neighbourhood's ideas are in line with the overall needs and priorities of the wider local area. We are supporting a number of communities in producing Neighbourhood Plans.
Once these plans are adopted, they form part of our Development Plan. You can find out more about the neighbourhood planning system, including key stages and what to consider, at the GOV.UK Neighbourhood Planning page.
