Presentation Transcript

There will be a greater emphasis on engagement between boroughs and communities in two key areas:

- Neighbourhood planning and the production of local plans

- Community involvement in planning applications

1 Finding the community

The Localism Bill allows the community to define itself and approach their borough as a ‘Neighbourhood Forum’.

The local authority would recognise legitimate forums and agree a boundary for the neighbourhood. In some cases the borough may also initiate engagement, where no groups come forward.

It is important that the community groups involved in a process are as representative as possible of the end users of any initiative, and cover a wide range of interests and viewpoints.

1 Finding the community

Understanding the make-up of a neighbourhood

Existing neighbourhood organisation

Inherent neighbourhood organisation

Using the internet and local newspapers

Community Profiling

Timescales of urban change

Cultural and ethnic groups

Transient residents

2 Agreeing Scope and Objectives

Most of the following points should be agreed:

- The policy context and scale of plan-making

- An understanding of funding and time constraints of the plan-making or building project to ensure realistic expectations.

- The purpose of engagement - a commitment to take ideas seriously.

- A commitment to continuity and engagement from all parties

- The process of engagement appropriate to the context and community desires.

- Timetable and responsibilities

The process may continue in the following ways:

- The application of a Neighbourhood Development Order (NDO), to establish parameters for acceptable development which will not need planning permission.

- The adoption of a Neighbourhood Plan as part of the Local Development Framework (LDF)

- Through planning applications

- Securing project implementation funding
