Budget Q and A - What Do You Think?

Neighbourhood Areas are formally designated areas within the District within which NeighbourhoodPlanning can be undertaken.

Neighbourhood Areas are designated by the District Council upon application by a local Parish or Town Council. The designation of an area enables the Parish or Town Council to prepare Neighbourhood Plans or Orders which may contain policies and proposals relating to the development or protection of land.

The process for preparing these Plans must comply with the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012.

  • A statement explaining why the area is considered appropriate to be designated as a Neighbourhood Area
