Neighbourhood planning

The  Localism Act introduced a new local tier to the planning system called neighbourhood planning. This enables Town and Parish Councils to prepare, with the community they represent, a Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) or Neighbourhood Development Order (NDO).

Local people can now take a proactive role in shaping the future of the areas they live in. Neighbourhood Plans or Orders need to conform to the existing higher level planning framework but can still offer communities the ability to create a local solution to local issues.

Neighbourhood Planning Training Workshops

West Lindsey District Council and Community Lincs provide regular training workshops to parish and town councils/ steering groups preparing neighbourhood plans in the district. Information on future workshops on offer will be given on this page.
