Adopted neighbourhood plans 

Adopted plans become part of the statutory ‘development plan’ and therefore will be used alongside the Council’s own adopted planning documents when making decisions on planning applications in a neighbourhood area.

Influence the future of your neighbourhood

Communities can influence the future of their neighbourhood by preparing a neighbourhood plan that sets out the vision for their local area and general planning policies to guide developments.

Please see below for guidance to help communities decide whether to get involved in neighbourhood planning and help them in preparing a plan if they do.

Locality provides support communities with neighbourhood planning.  You can apply for direct support and funding and receive useful advice and contacts through their website.
