Detail

A pot of £600,000 resource grant funding is being made available in the 2015 to 2016 financial year to be awarded to a series of pilot authorities to help them:

  • better support neighbourhood planning by piloting ways of making neighbourhood planning an integral part of their planning service, for example in relation to Local Plan-making, or
  • to identify ways of involving or delegating planning decisions to neighbourhood planning groups, or
  • to make changes to their service to ensure that they have an up-to-date Local Plan in place by 2017

Deadline for applications is 18 December 2015.
