A neighbourhood plan is a way of helping local communities to influence the planning of the area in which they live and work.

It can be used to:

  • Develop a shared vision for your neighbourhood
  • Choose where new homes, shops, offices and other development should be built
  • Identify and protect important local green spaces
  • Influence what new buildings should look like
