Neighbourhood Planning

Neighbourhood Planning was introduced through the Localism Act (2011). Our neighbourhood planning team has made good progress with a number of initiatives - you can read more about this under "Current Projects".

How we can help you

We have produced a toolkit of advice and guidance to help local communities through the process of neighbourhood planning: Guide to Neighbourhood Planning.
