Advice on preparing community-led plans
Communities that wish to prepare their own plan are encouraged to use the guidance available under Neighbourhood Planning / Community Led Planning Guidance.
The following communities are in the process of preparing community-led plans to support the future development of their areas:
- Lydbury North
Neighbourhood Plans will allow communities to shape the future of their areas. This could include determining the location of shops, offices and schools to setting standards of design for new housing.
They're instigated and prepared by local communities with our support. They include extensive community engagement and will be looked at by an independent examiner to consider how the plan fits in with local and national planning policies. They form part of the development plan for that specific area on adoption by Shropshire Council.
