Neighbourhood Planning gives communities direct power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of their local area. Local communities can choose to set planning policies through a neighbourhood plan that are used in determining planning applications, subject to undertaking various stages of consultation and examination.
We can assist all those involved in the Neighbourhood Planning process.
If you own land or buildings that may be affected by a Neighbourhood Plan it is important that you engage in the process of its preparation to protect your interests. We will explain the process and help you engage to achieve your objectives.
We have successfully engaged in several Neighbourhood Planning processes across the country on behalf of landowners and developers.
If you are preparing a Neighbourhood Plan, it is important that you comply with the relevant regulations and requirements, including being in accordance with the Local Plan. We provide advice and support to help you navigate the process and prepare your Plan in the most efficient and effective way.
