What is the Neighbourhood Plan?

A Neighbourhood Plan is a document that sets out planning policies for a local area.

It’s used to decide whether to approve planning applications, including new buildings (e.g. community facilities) or changes to existing buildings (e.g. giving permission to change the upper floors of shops to flats).

It’s written by the local community, the people who know and love the area, to ensure the community gets the right types of development, in the right place.

Neighbourhood planning is supported by central government through the Localism Act.
