Developing a shared vision on future development
Neighbourhood planning is a vital part of the Government’s plans to help local communities play a much stronger role in the shaping of their area.
For the first time, local people can create a plan that allows them to work with the council to develop planning policies that reflect the priorities of their area and have real legal weight. The whole community then decides at a referendum vote whether the local authority should bring the plan into force.
Nearly 2,000 communities in England have already begun neighbourhood planning and you could now join the North Kingston Neigbourhood Forum.
