We are continuing to support our neighbourhood planning groups and are contactable via email and phone as normal. We are now also using video and telephone conferences to help with the delivery of our support, advice and guidance to groups.

In response to the updated Government advice relating to COVID-19, we are progressing neighbourhood planning consultations with mitigation measures, taking reasonable steps to make people aware of consultations, to reach all parts of the community, and to give people a reasonable chance to participate effectively.
