Council support

Council support

Our Neighbourhood Planning Team can provide some technical advice to help you draw up your neighbourhood plan proposals.

We can:

  • meet with you to explain the neighbourhood planning system
  • offer advice on how to become a neighbourhood forum and a neighbourhood area
  • tell you about possible funding such as CLG Frontrunners or City Living Local Life Ward Funds
  • apply for funding for the neighbourhood forum if needed
  • feedback on your draft neighbourhood plan
  • advise you on how to consult on your draft neighbourhood plan before you submit it to the Council
  • publicise your neighbourhood plan and/or neighbourhood development order
  • submit your neighbourhood plan for examination
  • support the examination process
  • conduct the referendum

We can’t provide any financial help to support your neighbourhood plan.
