Through the Localism Act the government is giving local communities new powers to have a direct say in the future development of their neighbourhood, parish or town. A Neighbourhood Plan is a planning document that guides and shapes development in the local area and is created by local people. Here you can get the latest updates for the Neighbourhood Plans currently in progress
A map showing designated/proposed Neighbourhood Plan areas can be viewed on the Neighbourhood Plans Interactive Map.
