Neighbourhood Development Plans support

2nd July 2020

Neighbourhood Planning is a 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, all planning applications have to be assessed against the NDP document and the Local Plan for East Riding.

There is currently financial support from MHCLG in form of grants to a maximum of £9,000 to help communities who are considering starting a Neighbourhood Development Plan. A new Landmark legal ruling will also provide a precendent, so that by developing your own Neighbourhood Plan, you can fight off proposals by developers . (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 authority 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.
