Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012
Neighbourhood Area Consultation
An application for the designation of a Neighbourhood Area has been submitted to Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council.
Neighbourhood planning, which was introduced by the Localism Act, is a new way for communities to decide the future of the places where they live and work. It offers the opportunity for communities to guide development within their area. If adopted, a neighbourhood plan will be part of the statutory development plan for the area, meaning that the Local Planning Authority and planning inspectors will need to take the plan into account when making planning decisions.
In areas with a Parish or Town Council, the designation of the Neighbourhood Area is the first step in the process towards creating a Neighbourhood Plan.
A Neighbourhood Area defines the area to which the Neighbourhood Plan will apply.
