A-Z Neighbourhood plan - progress to date

The list below sets out neighbourhood plans which are complete or underway throughout the county. There are seven stages that a neighbourhood plan has to go through which are shown on Neighbourhood planning step by step process. If an area is not listed, it is likely that no neighbourhood planning activity has started for that area. If your area is absent from the list we recommend you contact your local parish or town council (websites for each town and parish council can be found on Parish and town websites, or if you are interested in setting up a neighbourhood forum in an unparished area then contact us for more information.
