What is neighbourhood planning?

Neighbourhood planning was introduced by the Localism Act 2011 and came into effect in April 2012. It is a government initiative aimed at trying to empower local communities to help make and take forward planning proposals at a local level.

A summary of the key stages in the neighbourhood planning process can be found in the national Planning practice guidance.
