Neighbourhoodplanning

It has always been our intention that neighbourhood development plans should be flexible….

We want communities to be able to use neighbourhood planning in ways which reflect their needs and their vision for the future.

Neighbourhood development plans can be as simple or as ambitious as the community wants to make them.

They can include policies covering the whole area, or could have just one or two policies focused on a specific site, such as a high street or a valued green space.

(Baroness Hanham, House of Lords Localism Bill Report Stage)
