Want to have a say over where new homes, shops and offices are built or what new buildings should look like?

Maybe you want to protect and enhance your local high street, choose where new industries should be located, or protect your local green spaces for generations to enjoy in years to come?

Neighbourhood Planning could be the right tool for you.

The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) shall be continuing the Neighbourhood Planning grant and support programme beyond March 2018. Find out more on My Community.

A formal update on the new Neighbourhood Planning programme is expected shortly.

In the interim, we have been asked by MHCLG to advise all visitors to the My Community site that the new programme is on track to open from the 1 April 2018.

Applications for Grant and Technical Support will be available from this date. We will provide a full update here as soon as we have clarification from MHCLG.

How do I apply for a Neighbourhood Planning grant or get support?

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 for free.

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.
