Neighbourhood Planning

These pages provide information, news and resources on neighbourhood planning in Daventry District. 

Neighbourhood planning seeks to give communities more control over the future of their area by helping to change attitudes towards development and by giving local people the chance to have their say on what happens where they live.

A Neighbourhood Plan can establish general planning policies for the development and use of land in a defined neighbourhood area. Plans may contain a vision, local priorities, planning policies, proposals for improving an area or providing new facilities or infrastructure, or allocation of key sites for development.

There is no requirement for local communities to undertake neighbourhood planning. A number of alternative approaches are available and we can provide advice on these too.
