Other community orders
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.
