Helping town and parish councils create a neighbourhood plan

This webpage provides information to help town and parish councils decide whether they want to create a neighbourhood plan, and if they do, how to go about preparing one.

We've split the information below into the following sections:


Deciding to produce a neighbourhood plan


Getting started


Preparing the plan


Sources of evidence and information


Bringing the plan into force


Delivering and monitoring the plan


Other guidance and useful links


Neighbourhood planning interactive map

To help in the preparation of neighbourhood plans, we have developed a neighbourhood planning interactive map which shows constraints, planning applications, the progress of neighbourhood plans in the district, and designations contained within the Local Plan.
