Getting started on Neighbourhood Planning

The Government introduced Neighbourhood Plans (NPs) under the Localism Act 2011, a new way for communities to influence their future.  CPRE thinks they could better protect the distinctiveness and local character of rural areas as new development is planned.  There are rules, such as they must conform to national and local plan policies, and cannot be used to stop development outright.  But, they should improve the quality and design integrity of development.
