Neighbourhood Plans must be in general conformity with the strategic policies in the Local Plan
Neighbourhood Plans must not promote less development than set out in the Local Plan
Neighbourhood Plans have precedence over the non-strategic policies in the Local Plan
Direction of policy is likely to be similar to the adopted Local Plan
It will designate employment areas, town and local centres, housing sites etc.
It will also set general policy for the control of development, e.g. design expectations and the assessment of impacts
Where possible it will defer localdecisions to neighbourhood plans
