Neighbourhood Plan

Why have a neighbourhood plan? Neighbourhood planning provides the opportunity for communities to set out a positive vision for how they want their community to develop over the next ten, fifteen, twenty years in ways that meet identified local need and make sense for local people. They can put in place planning policies that will help deliver that vision or grant planning permission only for the development they want to see. Neighbourhood planning provides a powerful set of tools for local people.

The key stages in neighbourhood planning, taken from the official government guidance are as follows:
Step 1: Designating neighbourhood area - DONE
Step 2: Preparing a draft neighbourhood plan or Order
Step 3: Pre-submission publicity & consultation
Step 4: Submission of a neighbourhood plan or Order proposal to the local planning authority
Step 5: Independent Examination
Steps 6 and 7: Referendum and Making the neighbourhood plan or Order (bringing it into force)
