Becoming involved in neighbourhood planning

We realise that neighbourhood planning and the rules that communities need to follow can be complex, so we have prepared a guide to help communities decide whether to get involved in neighbourhood planning and help them in preparing a plan if they do.

Locality has government funding to support communities with neighbourhood planning. Their website ‘my community rights’ is where you can apply for direct support and funding and provides other useful advice and contacts. 

If you have any further questions on neighbourhood planning or are thinking of preparing a neighbourhood plan for your area please get in touch with us at
