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 Department for Communities and Local Government has made funding available to provide support and grants and you can apply now via the My Community website.

  • All groups writing a neighbourhood plan or neighbourhood development order will be eligible to apply for up to £8,000 in grant.
  • Groups facing more complex issues can apply for specific packages of technical support where needed, and may also be eligible for further £6,000 in grant.

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.
