Neighbourhood development planning

Neighbourhood planning was introduced by government in its Localism Act of 2011. It gives communities the chance to write their own chapter of the Local Plan and set the ground rules for development in their area. We have extensive experience in our team of helping communities with this new form of planning, and in 2015 ran a seminar in the District to help parish councils understand how to approach the task.
The presentation associated with the seminar is available here.

We are also actively assisting Appleton Roebuck with Acaster Selby parish council with their neighbourhood plan – the first in the District. You can view their progress at
