Do you want to shape the future of your area?
Do you want to be the somebody who has a say over where new homes, shops and offices are built? And how they look? Maybe you want to improve your high street? Or protect your favourite local spaces? Or ensure there are enough new homes for young families?
If so, neighbourhood planning could be right up your street.
DCLG have created a new neighbourhood planning microsite which is the place for people to go to find out how to get started, with a step by step guide through the process and downloadable leaflet and customisable poster to use in their neighbourhood. The microsite is hosted on the My Community website, where more neighbourhood planning information, resources, and case studies can be found, along with details about how to access grants.
