Getting started

Alert the whole community to the opportunity to create a Neighbourhood Plan. Explain what it is, and what it can't do. Explain the pressures of future development, and the potential benefits of having some control over it.

Assess the interest and support of the community for all aspects of a Neighbourhood Plan. Recruit volunteers to help and participate in working groups.

Create pages on the community website as a channel for communication as the process moves forward. Consider using social media to give the community a voice, and for those who are unable to attend meetings.

With agreement for a Neighbourhood Plan, form a representative steering group to consult with the community, gather evidence and produce the plan.
