Neighbourhood planning regulations now published
The RTPI responded to the DCLG consultation on the Neighbourhood Planning regulations, see the RTPI response here (pdf, 128kb).
We held two events in Birmingham and London in conjunction with Planning Aid England and DCLG to publicise the consultation and seek views.
We've also looked at existing tools for neighbourhood planning, with examples provided by members, as part of our Localism Act work.
Planning Aid England are extensively involved in Neighbourhood Planning and are advising a number of communities on the concept. Earlier this year Planning Aid England in conjunction with Planning Aid for London were awarded funding by DCLG under the Supporting Communities and Neighbourhoods. Since then they have been working with a number of community groups on the production of their neighbourhood plans as well as providing advice to those who are keen to get involved in the process once the Localism Act comes into force. They also take a pro-active role in education and capacity building with respect to Neighbourhood Planning.
If you are seeking independent professional planning advice on Neighbourhood Planning or any other aspect of the planning system then please contact one of their Planning Advisors on 0330 123 9244 or email@example.com.
