The Supporting Communities and Neighbourhoods in Planning Programme helps local groups develop neighbourhood plans.
Understanding neighbourhood planning
Since April 2012, local communities have been able to produce Neighbourhood Plans for their local
area, putting in place planning policies for the future development and growth of the neighbourhood.
The Quick Guide to Neighbourhood Plans gives a concise summary of the process for producing
a Neighbourhood Plan under the Localism Act, together with suggestions for good practice.
Neighbourhood Planning Roadmap
We’ve produced a guide to help groups navigate the world of neighbourhood planning. The Neighbourhood Planning Roadmap Guide is available to download now.
Neighbourhood planning knowledge hub
The Community Knowledge Hub for Neighbourhood Planning contains resources for every aspect of the neighbourhood planning process – from case studies to guidance and briefing notes, to a forum for questions and further resources online.
You can sign up to add resources, exchange advice and share tips on neighbourhood planning.
