“Neighbourhood planning was introduced in 2012. Local communities (neighbourhood forums in unparished areas and town/parish councils) can produce neighbourhood plans for their local areas, putting in place a vision and policies for the future development of the area. This presents real opportunities, but can seem a little daunting.”

“The attached Guide is designed to help local communities or parish and town councils to decide whether or not to produce a neighbourhood plan for their area and, if they decide to go ahead, to guide them through the process of producing the plan and thinking about how it will be delivered.
