Neighbourhood plans

Communities can now prepare neighbourhood plans to influence the future of their areas. These allow communities to set out their vision for their local area and general planning policies to guide development in their neighbourhood.

We realise that neighbourhood planning and the rules that communities need to follow can be complex so we have prepared a protocol to help communities decide whether to get involved in neighbourhood planning and help them in preparing a plan if they do.

You can download our protocol below -

A quick guide detailing the benefits of producing a neighbourhood plan is also provided below -

You are advised to contact us prior to the submission of details about the plan area and forum.
