Neighbourhood planning was introduced through the Localism Act in 2011.
This gives communities new rights and powers to shape development in the places they live and work, by coming together to produce:
- A neighbourhood plan: a community-led framework for guiding the future development and growth of an area that is used in determining planning applications.
- A neighbourhood development order: a means by which the local community can grant planning permission for certain types of development within a specified area.
- A community right to build order: a type of neighbourhood development order that can be used to grant planning permission for small scale development for community benefit on a specific site or sites.
