"The resulting Community Led Plan forms a blueprint for use by Town/Parish Councils and other local bodies, as well as providing evidence for funding bids to enable the actions identified to be completed."

Neighbourhood Development Plans support - (current project)

Neighbourhood Planning is a new way for communities to decide the future of spatial planning development in their community, as it relates to the building of Homes, Shops and Offices and includes the design element of new buildings. If communities successfully complete the various stages of the process and receive the backing of their community through a referendum, planning permission will be granted for new buildings they want to see go ahead.

There is currently financial support from DCLG in form of grants to a maximum of £8,000 to help communities who are considering starting a Neighbourhood Plan. A new Landmark legal ruling will also provide a precendent to fight off proposals by developers by developing your own Neighbourhood Plan. (see below)

A Neighbourhood Plan can build on the work already undertaken in a Community Led Plan but will create a more focussed and costed business proposal that outlines the communities preferred approach to building and infrastructure developments in their area. A successful Neighbourhood Plan will have legal status.


It is important to note that Neighbourhood Plans are not a NIMBY's charter. In fact the main reason for completing the process is because a community wants to influence local government in respect of the type of development they DO want.

Neighbourhood Plans can specify locations for housing, as well as tackling improving roads, footpaths and cycle networks, specify design and density of housing and safeguard sites from development that are valued as green spaces.
