Supporting Communities and Neighbourhoods in Planning
In partnership with CPRE, NALC have been given further funding to continue our successful programme offering practical support to communities with their neighbourhood plans until March 2013.
Justin Griggs, Head of Policy and Development at NALC says:
‘Through the Supporting Communities and Neighbourhoods in Planning programme we have already worked closely with over thirty local councils on their neighbourhood plans and the support we’ve provided has been very well received. We’re excited that we’re now able to continue this and extend help to more towns and villages.’
In addition to general advice our programme offers tailored neighbourhood planning support and neighbourhood planning workshops.
Communities that have already started developing their Neighbourhood Plan can apply for tailored support to help them turn their neighbourhood planning aspirations into reality.
We are running a number of neighbourhood planning workshops to help those communities that want to develop a Neighbourhood Plan to get started.
Advice and guidance
We provide advice and guidance on the planning system through this website, 'Planning Help', via a telephone hotline, through publications and e-learning modules.
