NALC add a new neighbourhood planning event to its calendar

The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) has added a new online event on how to review neighbourhood planning policies to its calendar, which takes place on 29 June 2022.

Many of the first waves of neighbourhood plans adopted by local (parish and town) councils since the Localism Act 2011 are now up for renewal and need to be reviewed and refreshed. Over the last 18 months, research published by the University of Reading confirmed that local councils manage around 90% of neighbourhood plans. However, there are concerns that local councils are not renewing plans and councils that previously had no plans are not producing them.

At the event, you will learn more about how your council can develop a neighbourhood plan from scratch and how to review and renew existing plans.
