Local Plan: Preferred Options Consultation

We are reviewing our adopted Local Plan. We are consulting on the Preferred Options stage NOW! The consultation closes at 4pm on Wednesday 19 June 2024. 

A Neighbourhood Development Order allows town and parish councils, or other organisations, to grant planning permission for certain developments, including:

  • house extensions in a defined area
  • changes of use
  • development on a particular site

We will not be involved in the planning application process for these types of development.

However, a Neighbourhood Development Order does not include planning applications relating to:

  • minerals and waste
  • some environmental projects
  • national infrastructure

A Community Right to Build Order gives the community the ability to grant planning permission for certain developments through a referendum.

Community Right to Build Orders are for small scale developments in neighbourhoods, including housing and community facilities.
