Neighbourhood planning gives communities the power to:
Make a Neighbourhood Development Plan
A neighbourhood development plan establishes general planning policies for the development and use of land in a neighbourhood, like:
- Choose where you want new homes, shops and offices to be built
- Have your say on what new buildings should look like
- Grant planning permission for the new buildings you want to see go ahead.
Make a Neighbourhood Development Order
A neighbourhood development order allows the community to grant planning permission for development that complies with the order. This removes the need for a planning application to be submitted to the local authority.
Make a Community Right to Build Order
A Community Right to Build order gives permission for small-scale, site-specific developments by a community group.
