What is a Neighbourhood Development Plan ?

A Neighbourhood Development Plan is a set of policies decided by the community. These policies indicate where and how land can be used, such as to develop housing, business premises and community facilities in a local area. It also considers how the environment will be protected. The plan also has a legal impact on planning applications, as the local authority must  refer to the plan when deciding planning applications.
