Neighbourhood development plans
Notice: Neighbourhood Plans Referendums
The Coronavirus Bill, introduced into Parliament on 19 March 2020, contains provisions to enable the postponement of electoral events, including neighbourhood planning referendums, over the course of the year. At this time, we cannot say when it may be feasible to resume ordinary processes. Once secondary legislation has been published, the Council will provide a more detailed update.
Villages and parishes throughout the Borough all have the opportunity to create their own Neighbourhood Development Plans (NDP). These plans when made become legal planning documents which shape future planning applications and developments.
By getting involved, the community can provide guidance on where development such as new homes and businesses can be built and what they should look like, as long as it is in accordance with strategic policies in the Local Plan.
