Neighbourhood planning is one of the central planks of the
recent planning reforms introduced by the Coalition Government that
is designed to devolve power and responsibility for planning down
to the neighbourhood level. This new tier of planning presents a
range of exciting opportunities and some real challenges for
communities to engage in the production of neighbourhood plans that
reflect their needs and aspirations. This seminar will explore some
of these opportunities and challenges through the lens of
neighbourhood planning in action by focusing on a number of case
study examples drawn from the West Midlands.
