District Council-led steps

Submit the plan, together with supporting documents, to the District Council.

They publicise the plan and invite comments. They check that the plan complies with legislation, and have it independently examined. If the examiner recommends that the plan should proceed, if necessary after modification, the District Council arranges a referendum.

A simple majority of those voting brings the plan into legal force. It is used to determine planning applications and guide planning decisions in the designated neighbourhood area.
