How to shape where you live

Neighbourhood Plans provide a great opportunity for you to have more influence on how the places in which you live and work will change over time. Your local knowledge and sense of what needs to be protected and what needs to change can really make a difference. We’ve put together eight simple steps to take if you want to prepare a Neighbourhood Plan and involve the whole community to make sure it becomes formally adopted as part of the development plan for your community.

How to respond to planning applications

Most significant developments in the United Kingdom require planning permission from a local planning authority. This process usually involves the submission of a planning application. As a member of the public, you are entitled to examine and comment on planning applications as they are made. This is your chance to press for planning decisions that work for the good of the environment and your local community. This guide tells you how to find out more about a planning application and — if necessary — how you can take action.
