What is neighbourhood planning?

Neighbourhood planning gives local communities the opportunity to plan for their local areas and decide what the place where you live should look like and how it should develop and grow in the future. It can be used to:

•choose where new homes, shops and offices should be built
•have a say on what those new buildings should look like
•influence the design and functionality of open spaces around where you live
•grant planning permission for the new buildings your community wants to see go ahead.

Neighbourhood planning cannot be used to block the building of the homes and businesses considered to be necessary to meet the borough's current and future needs. However, you can use it to influence the type, design, location and mix of new development.

There are three types of neighbourhood planning your community may wish to do:

Neighbourhood Plan- establish your vision and general planning policies and proposals for the future development and use of different plots of land in your local community area

a neighbourhood plan will form part of the borough's statutory local development plan against which all planning applications and development proposals will be decided

a neighbourhood plan could include neighbourhood development orders and community right to build order

Neighbourhood Development Order - allows you to grant planning permission for certain types of development that you want to see go ahead in your community area

Community Right to Build Order - allows you to grant planning permission for the local community to build small-scale housing developments, community facilities or shops.
