Neighbourhood planning

Neighbourhood plans

Approved neighbourhood plans sit alongside the Local Plan to help make decisions on planning applications.

They give communities direct power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of their local area. Plans must be led by parish or town councils or neighbourhood forums, with the involvement of local stakeholder groups.
