The world of neighbourhood
planning continues to evolve, as legal challenges and developing practice
increase the need for them to be firmly based in evidence and fit coherently
with the framework provided by the local plan.
The neighbourhood planning learning group
This group brings together local authority officers who work to provide support to qualifying bodies to capture learning and exchange experience
Review of an emerging neighbourhood plan
Substantial support is available
to parish councils and groups preparing neighbourhood plans. But some
still get themselves into difficulties by promoting policies which will not
meet the basic conditions, or would be unworkable in practice.
We can help you through the
services of a highly-experienced planner who is a specialist in neighbourhood
planning, who will provide you with an independent assessment of an emerging
plan. This will not only identify any
areas of weakness but also offer practical suggestions on how they can be dealt
with. Thus armed, you will be well
placed to encourage the group to make sensible changes, or come the worst, make
effective representations to the examiner.
We offer a workshop on how NDP preparation has evolved over time as in terms of evidence and clear methodology have grown, and the implications for LPAs in supporting neighbourhood plans
