What is a Neighbourhood Plan - in very simple terms it is :

  • A document that sets out planning policies for the neighbourhood area, planning policies are used to decide whether to approve planning applications
  • Written by the local community, the people who know and love the area, rather than the Local Planning Authority
  • A powerful tool to ensure the community gets the right types of development in the right place
