Neighbourhood Planning, through the introduction of Neighbourhood Plans and Neighbourhood Development orders, has become an established feature of the English Planning System. There has been considerable debate about whether or not this has been a positive development, but it seems that Neighbourhood Planning is here to stay.
Where Neighbourhood Plans exists, for better of for worse, a new democratic entity is created with its own administrative character and its own demands in terms of the development planning process. This event will bring together industry experts to discuss how development stakeholders can best interact with the Neighbourhood Planning regime.
