Summary of responses and the government response to the neighbourhood planning chapter of the technical consultation on planning changes
(published 2 September 2016)
Chapter 5 of the consultation put forward proposals to make it even easier for residents and business to come together to produce a neighbourhood plan or a neighbourhood development order.
The proposed reforms are part of a wider set of planned improvements that will help more communities that want to take up the new powers to do so, and ensure individual neighbourhood plans and orders can complete more quickly.
This consultation is seeking views on the proposed approach to implementation of measures in the Housing and Planning Bill, and some other planning measures.
Responses to the consultation will inform the detail of the secondary legislation which will be prepared once the Bill gains Royal Assent.
