Community Right to Build

The Community Right to Build will allow communities to choose where and when to build homes, shops, facilities and businesses.

This part of the Localism Act is an alternative to the traditional application for planning permission. It gives the community the power to decide for themselves what happens in their neighbourhood for example affordable housing, sheltered housing or a new community centre.
