What is a Neighbourhood Development Plan?

Neighbourhood Development Plans were established under the Localism Act. This became law in 2011. A Neighbourhood Development plan is a new tier in planning policy which gives communities statutory powers to shape how their communities develop. A neighbourhood development plan is written by the local community and will, for the first time, give the community a real voice in deciding the look and feel of future development in the town. Local people will be able to have their say on the location of new homes, the design of buildings, the shops they want to see in the High Street, and the green spaces that should be protected.

If approved by a local referendum, the Stratford-upon-Avon Neighbourhood Development Plan will be adopted by the District Council as a plan which must be used in law to determine planning applications in the Neighbourhood Area.
