Neighbourhood Plan

What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

Neighbourhood planning gives communities direct power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of their local area. They are able to influence where they want new homes, shops and offices to be located, have their say on what those new buildings should look like and what infrastructure should be provided.  Neighbourhood planning provides a powerful set of tools for local people to ensure that they get the right types of development for their community where the ambition of the neighbourhood is aligned with the strategic needs and priorities of the wider local area.
Councillors and Council Officers are preparing a Neighbourhood Development Plan, ready for consultation. The following areas will be considered:
