Details of existing neighbourhood plans in North Lincolnshire, how to start your own neighbourhood plans, and our duty to help.
The Localism Act 2011 brought about reforms to the planning system in England which give communities more control and influence over their area and how it should develop. The main tool for doing this is the community-led Neighbourhood Plan.
Neighbourhood planning allows residents, employees and businesses to come together through a local town or parish council or neighbourhood forum to say where, for example, they think new houses, businesses and shops should go and what they should look like. Neighbourhood planning is not compulsory nor should it be used as a means to stop development. Any plans must be broadly in line with the Local Plan for the area.
All groups undertaking a neighbourhood plan or a neighbourhood development order are eligible to apply for up to £10,000. Find out more on the neighbourhood planning website.
