What is Neighbourhood Planning?
The Localism Act has introduced a new type of community led plan, known as Neighbourhood Planning. Neighbourhood planning gives local communities the opportunity to plan for their local area, such as deciding what the area where you live should look like and how it should develop and grow in the future.
There are three types of neighbourhood planning your community may wish to do:
- Neighbourhood Plan - establishes a vision and general planning policies and proposals for the future development and use of land in your local community area. A neighbourhood plan will form part of the District's statutory local development plan against which all planning applications and development proposals will be decided. A neighbourhood plan could include neighbourhood development orders and community right to build orders.
- Neighbourhood Development Order - allows you to grant planning permission for certain types of development that you want to see go ahead in your community area.
- Community Right to Build Order - allows you to grant planning permission for the local community to build small-scale housing developments, community facilities or shops.
Neighbourhood planning is optional. It is up to the individual communities to decide whether they want to use some or all of the new powers to shape the local area, or whether other existing planning tools are more appropriate to achieve local community aspirations.
Frequently Asked Questions
Stratford District Council is committed to getting local people involved in planning for development of their local areas. To assist with this, the Council has prepared a set of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) to provide more information about the new powers and explain how Neighbourhood Planning could be of use to local communities in the District.
The FAQs also explain the differences between Village Design Statements, Parish Plans and Neighbourhood Plans, to help communities decide which of these planning tools would be the most helpful in achieving local communities' aspirations and needs.
The Government, the District Council and other organisations provide support and advice for communities wanting to undertake a Neighbourhood Plan for their Parish area.
A consultation and local survey service is also available to any community wanting to make progress on their parish or neighbourhood plans.
