What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

The Campaign for the Protection of Rural England defines A Neighbourhood Plan (sometimes called a Neighbourhood Development Plan) as ‘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.

What a Neighbourhood Plan can and cannot do

A Neighbourhood Plan can...
  • Decide where and what type of development should happen in the neighbourhood
  • Promote more development than is set out in the Local Plan
  • Include policies, for example regarding design standards, that take precedence over existing policies in the Local Plan for the neighbourhood - provided the Neighbourhood Plan policies do not conflict with the strategic policies in the Local Plan.

A Neighbourhood Plan cannot...
  • Conflict with the strategic policies in the Local Plan prepared by the local planning authority
  • Be used to prevent development that is included in the Local Plan
  • Be prepared by a body other than a parish or town council or a neighbourhood forum.

Typical things that a Neighbourhood Plan might include:
  • The development of housing, including affordable housing (affordable housing is housing that is not normally for sale on the open market), and bringing vacant or derelict housing back into use.
  • Provision for businesses to set up or expand their premises.
  • Transport and access (including issues around roads, cycling, walking and access for disabled people).
  • The development of schools, places of worship, health facilities, leisure and entertainment facilities, community and youth centres and village halls.
  • The restriction of certain types of development and change of use, for example to avoid too much of one type of use.
  • The design of buildings.
  • Protection and creation of open space, nature reserves, allotments, sports pitches, play areas, parks and gardens, and the planting of trees.
  • Protection of important buildings and historic assets such as archaeological remains.
  • Promotion of renewable energy projects, such as solar energy and wind turbines.’
