Neighbourhood Development Plan for Beckley and Stowood Parish

What are Neighbourhood Plans?

Neighbourhood planning is part of a new approach to planning introduced by the Localism Act 2011. The new system is designed to be more collaborative and gives communities more powers to shape the future of the places where they live and work.

Neighbourhood Planning is the government's initiative of trying to empower local communities to help make and take forward planning proposals at a local level.  The idea being that local people will drive, and then help to shape, how their local communities grow and develop over the next coming years.

Neighbourhood plans can only be made by one of two groups, towns/parishes or neighbourhood forums.  As our area has parishes, town and parishes will take the lead in pushing them forward.
