Local communities can now take on the responsibility of planning for their local area by preparing a neighbourhood plan. This was introduced through the Localism Act 2011. Neighbourhood plans form part of the development plan so are a powerful way for communities to shape the future of their neighbourhoods.
We have an expert and experienced team who can provide support at all stages of the process of preparing a Neighbourhood Plan. We can provide a bespoke service which can be personalised to your needs, helping you to prepare a plan that reflects the vision and objectives of the community.
We can advise on all elements of the neighbourhood planning process, including grant funding, the designation of the neighbourhood area, the allocation of sites and the drafting of policies.
We can help as much or as little as you need. We can provide the technical advice and support to ensure that your plan meets all the regulatory and policy requirements.
If you and your local community want to prepare a Neighbourhood Plan and you need help or advice with any aspect of this work, please Contact us for an initial, no obligation discussion.
