Neighbourhood development plans

Notice: Neighbourhood Plans Referendums

Regulations linked to the Coronavirus Act 2020 mean that no elections or referendums can take place until 6 May 2021. This includes neighbourhood planning referendums. These provisions will be kept under review and may be amended or revoked in response to changing circumstances. With this in mind, we have updated current planning guidance to set out that neighbourhood plans awaiting referendums can be given significant weight in decision-making.

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.
