Are you involved in planning your neighbourhood? Or would you like to be?

This website supports people and communities who are using new powers under the Localism Act 2011 to create neighbourhood plans.

So if you’re interested in shaping your local area, and deciding where new homes, shops and other facilities will go and what they will look like, we’d like to invite you to join our forums, set up a local group, and generally use the site’s resources to share experience and learn from others.
