Neighbourhood Plans enable communities to have more control over planning and housing decisions in their local area. They are stautory plans with a legal status. More information about Neighbourhood Plans can be found on the Government's website here. 

There is therefore an opportunity to include nature in your local Neighbourhood plan, in order to help protect and enhance it for future generations. The LNP has produced a guidance document to help local communities incorporate the natural environment into their Neighbourhood Plan.
