WHAT IS A NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN?
Since April 2012, local communities have been able to produce Neighbourhood Plans for their local area, putting in place planning policies for the future growth of the neighbourhood. The plan can for instance control where new homes, shops and offices should be built, what those buildings should look like, and what infrastructure should be provided.
All the policies in a Neighbourhood Plan must be consistent with the Local Plan (in our case, the District Plan by East Herts District Council). The Plan can shape development but cannot prevent development which is part of the Local Plan.
For further information on Neighbourhood Planning in general, see the guide published by Locality here.
