Neighbourhood Plans

Neighbourhood planning offers the opportunity for local people to be involved in shaping the future of the areas in which they live and work. These pages outline the stages that involve some form of public statutory engagement such as consultation on a document, an examination on the plan or a referendum on whether to accept a plan.
