What is a Neighbourhood Plan?
It is a document created by local people that sets out planning policy for where you live. It helps you protect the things you care about in your community, such as important local green spaces, as well as make improvements to the local area. For example, it can show where buildings can and can’t be built, what they should look like, and used for. It can also encourage the kind of development that you would like to see more of.
Why a neighbourhood plan might help?
A neighbourhood plan carries the same legal weight as plans drawn up by your council. This means it gives you and your community a powerful voice that must be listened to when decisions are made about development in your area. For example, your council must follow what’s in your neighbourhood plan when making decisions about planning applications and developers or landowners must follow it if they want to get planning permission.
