​Neighbourhood planning

The 2011 Localism Act has introduced powers for local communities to produce a new type of community-led plan known as a Neighbourhood Development Plan (or 'Neighbourhood Plan', for short). A neighbourhood plan must comply with the basic conditions in the Localism Act and the 2012 Neighbourhood Planning Regulations.

Neighbourhood development orders were also introduced as part of the 2011 Localism Act. These are different to NDPs as neighbourhood development orders enable the community to grant planning permission for development.
