Neighbourhood Plans

Neighbourhood planning gives the opportunity for local people to be involved in shaping their future area where they live and work, through participation in the preparation stages of a Neighbourhood Plan. This can range from voting in the referendum on the plan, making comments on it when it is published for consultation or being involved with the production of the Neighbourhood Plan. 

This document forms part of the 'development plan' for an area and Breckland Council produce a 'Local Plan' which is the other strategic part of the 'development plan' for the area. Together they act as the main guide for making decisions about planning applications and are used in planning appeals. 

These pages outline the plan preparation stages that involve some form of public statutory engagement such as consultation on a document, an examination on the plan or a local public referendum on whether to accept a plan.
