Locality is the leading nationwide network of settlements, development trusts, social action centres and community enterprises. They have produced two useful guides to neighbourhood planning which are worth a read to find out how Neighbourhood Planning works.
This guide gives a concise summary of the process for producing a Neighbourhood Plan under the Localism Act, together with suggestions for good practice.
This guide is for all those involved in, or thinking about, producing a Neighbourhood Plan, and for those who are just curious to find out more. Whilst other guides are predominantly concerned with the legislation and process, we have attempted, wherever possible, to include guidance on good practice and worksheets for carrying out each part of the plan.
