Neighbourhood planning

Through the Localism Act the Government has introduced new rights and powers to allow local communities to come together to prepare Neighbourhood Plans.  The Localism Act introduced a new tier to the planning system, giving local communities greater control over the development of their areas. It will enable a community, be it a group of residents, employees or businesses, to have a say in where new development should go, what it should look like and also the power to grant planning permission.
