The community right to build is a particular type of neighbourhood development order which allows the local community to propose and grant planning permission for a specific development in their local area.
It is up to the community to decide the type, quantity and design of the development. It can be used to approve the building of homes, shops, businesses, affordable housing, community facilities or playgrounds, provided that the proposed development does not breach and is compatible with EU and Human Rights obligations.
