Referendums for neighbourhood planning

Government rules give local communities powers to create their own plans and policies, these 'neighbourhood plans' are prepared by town or parish councils, or neighbourhood forums and show the community wants land to be used and developed in the areas where they live and work.

After a neighbourhood plan has been checked by an independent examiner, members of the community can vote in a referendum for neighbourhood planning to determine whether it comes into force, and will be used by us, as the 'local planning authority', when we consider planning permission.
