Neighbourhood Planning Referendums

What are Neighbourhood Planning Referendums?

A neighbourhood development plan, known as a neighbourhood plan, is written by local people, ‘made’ or adopted by the district council and becomes part of the development plan, which helps to decide planning applications. It takes national planning policy and guidance into account and is ‘in general conformity’ with the district’s planning policy. 

You can find further information regarding what Neighbourhood Plans involve on this page, guidance notes for campaigners and local councillors on this page, and can contact Planning Policy using 01235 422600.
