Supporting and Managing Neighbourhood Planning

Date: 28/2/2015

The Society gives great importance to the active participation of the public in plan making at the local level and for that reason welcomed the neighbourhood planning provisions in the Localism Act, 2011. 

Viewed positively, neighbourhood plans offer the Local Planning Authority (LPA) an alternative way of securing a shared vision, policies and projects in their area. The purpose of this Advice Note is therefore to share good practice to help LPAs offer the best possible support to those preparing neighbourhood plans in their area without placing unacceptable pressure on the planning service as a whole.

The advice draws on the experience of members and advice and case studies published by organisations such as Planning Aid England (PAE) and Locality who provide professional support directly to neighbourhood planning teams, the Planning Advisory Service (PAS) and the DCLG "Notes on Neighbourhood Planning."
