10. Neighbourhood Planning

10.1 You and or your community may also be interested in getting involved in 'Neighbourhood Planning' which enables your community to shape local development in your area through the Localism Act 2011.

10.2 Neighbourhood Development Plans set out planning Policies for the neighbourhood area. The Council doesn't initiate the preparation of a Neighbourhood Plan as this is a tool available to local communities to prepare their own planning policies (including site allocations). Therefore, Neighbourhood Plan initiation rests with a Town or Parish Council.

10.3 This SCI does not prescribe what methods of community engagement must be followed as the appropriate level of community engagement and the scope of the Neighbourhood Plan is to be decided by the Town/Parish Council. However, as a starting point, it is recommended that local communities follow the general consultation principles and methods outlined in Table 1 of this SCI.

10.4 The Council has produced more detailed guidance in relation to Neighbourhood Planning for use by the community which can be accessed on our Neighbourhood Planning Webpage: http://www.easthants.gov.uk/planning-policy/neighbourhood-planning
