What you need to know about a Neighbourhood Plan

We’ve gathered together some of the most frequently asked questions about Neighbourhood Plans. You might find the answer to your question here. If you don’t feel free to ask!

  • A Neighbourhood Plan is a community-led planning policy document to guide future development in the parish. It can include policies about the use and development of land and buildings and types of development over the next 20 years. It may contain aspirations for improving the area or providing new facilities.

    A Neighbourhood Plan will become part of the Local Development Plan for the area. It will not be able to change the policies or block development allocations in the Greater Norwich Local Plan but will be able to influence future GNLP reviews.
