Overview

What is it?

A Neighbourhood Plan is a document that works to deliver the scale and type of development that local people wish to see in their area.

Once adopted, it sits alongside the Local Authority’s Local Plan and will be used to help determine planning applications that are submitted for the area covered by the Neighbourhood Plan.

A Quick Guide to Neighbourhood Plans is available here (PDF)

Who does it?

A Steering Group made up of local residents who oversee and lead the production of the Plan.

A Steering Group is open to all members of the local community and consists of a mix of Parish Councillors and local residents.

What can it do?

A Neighbourhood Plan can be used to deliver development that the local community wish to see. It can allocate sites or list criteria that all new developments must meet, such as the design, location and type of development.

A Neighbourhood Plan can also allocate sites as protected green space and be used to protect important community facilities and environmental assets.
