Designated Neighbourhood Plan Areas

What is a neighbourhood area designation?

The first step in the official process of developing a neighbourhood plan is for a community to apply to us to designate a neighbourhood plan area. The local town or parish council should submit to us the following:

  • A map which identifies the area to be covered by the neighbourhood plan
  • A statement explaining why the boundaries chosen are appropriate
  • A statement confirming that they are, as a parish or town council, a "relevant body" entitled to request that we designate their area

Central government amended the neighbourhood planning regulations in 2016 in an effort to minimise unnecessary delays. These changes removed the requirement for us to publicise and carry out six-week consultations on neighbourhood area designations. Decisions on designations are now taken under delegated powers by the district council's planning and housing policy portfolio holder (currently Councillor Christopher Saint).

Our district has 34 designated Neighbourhood Plan Areas.
