Neighbourhood plans

About neighbourhood plans

Neighbourhood plans are created by local people in a neighbourhood forum and outline their vision for where they live. They give communities greater power to shape the future of their local area.

Creating a neighbourhood plan provides you with an exciting opportunity to be directly involved in the development of where you live and work.

For example, you and your local community have the opportunity to:

  • Say where you think new houses, businesses and shops should be built.
  • Have a say on what buildings should look like.
  • Help further new developments you want to see go ahead.
