What is a Neighbourhood Plan?
A Neighbourhood Plan is a way of helping local communities to influence the planning of the area in which they live and work. In South Staffordshire, Neighbourhood plans can be made by parish councils, who are known as designated bodies.
Plans are led and written by the community, not the district council. Neighbourhood plans have to be in line with the National Planning Policy Framework and the overall strategic approach and policies set out in South Staffordshire's Local Plan.
For more information see Government Guidance on Neighbourhood Plans
