Neighbourhood Development Plan

What is a Neighbourhood Development Plan?

Neighbourhood planning is a right for communities introduced through the Localism Act 2011. Communities can shape development in their areas through the production of Neighbourhood Development Plans, Neighbourhood Development Orders and Community Right to Build Orders.Neighbourhood Development Plans become part of the Local Plan and the policies contained within them are then used in the determination of planning applications.

It must be stressed that the policies produced cannot block development that is already part of the Local Plan. What they can do is shape where that development will go and what it will look like.

St Enoder Parish Council is preparing a Neighbourhood Development Plan and will be sending out questionnaires and information newsletters to keep all residents up to date. When all the information has been gathered a plan will be compiled which will finish with a referendum. The referendum is an important part of the process allowing those that live in the neighbourhood area to decide whether or not the Neighbourhood Development Plan, comes into effect or not.
