What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

Neighbourhood Plans give local people the opportunity to have a greater say in the kind of development they want for their community.  They provide guidance on what development is appropriate for local need and where it should go. The plans can include where transport infrastructure, community facilities and businesses are located and cover issues such as the protection of local heritage.

Why should we have a Neighbourhood Plan?

St Albans District Council is currently producing a Local Plan for the district which will identify areas for new housing and other development.  A Neighbourhood Plan would help shape that development.  The Plan would set out what local residents want to see happen in their neighbourhoods so that future development takes those wishes into account.

Where Neighbourhood Plans are adopted they sit alongside the Local Plan to form part of the overall Development Plan for the district.  This is then taken into account by the District Council in its capacity as the local planning authority when making decisions on planning applications.
