Neighbourhood Planning

There is an estimated 300 neighbourhood plans in place and up to 600 in
gestation – an indication that neighbourhood plans are gaining momentum.

In April 2017, the Neighbourhood Planning Act 2017 became law. The seven sections of the Act that relate to neighbourhood planning are significant and support the Government’s efforts to expand and strengthen the system of neighbourhood plans. It demonstrates that neighbourhood plans are set to grow in importance in the years to come.

Our updated neighbourhood planning guide provides 4 key steps for developers and land promoters to take now – please feel free to share this with any of your clients and contacts who may be affected.

Opening Quote MarkDevelopers need to recognise that neighbourhood development plans are increasing in importance and therefore consideration needs to be given to how to deal with them where they exist. While it doesn’t significantly change the approach to planning, it is important to recognise that adaptations may need to be made to deal with planning at a local level. Closing Quote Mark
