Communities now have great opportunities to say how they develop and address issues through plans they develop themselves. There are two main types:
Community Led Plans
These useful for considering the community as a whole and looking at a range of issues such as economic, environmental and social. For more information see the Community Led Plans page.
These are more focussed on land use and development issues, and if adopted, become part of the formal planning policy. For more information see the Neighbourhood Plans page.
It is entirely possible for a community to undertake or combine both types of plan to give a really rounded vision for the community's future.
