Understanding neighbourhood planning Quick Guide to Neighbourhood Plans

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.
