Draft Neighbourhood Plans
Local planning authorities may give weight to relevant policies in emerging plans according to:
(a) the stage of preparation of the emerging plan (the more advanced its preparation, the greater the weight that may be given)
(b) the extent to which there are unresolved objections to relevant policies (the less significant the unresolved objections, the greater the weight that may be given)
(c) the degree of consistency of the relevant policies in the emerging plan to the National Planning Policy Framework (the closer the policies in the emerging plan to the policies in the Framework, the greater the weight that may be given).
What changes have been introduced to neighbourhood planning in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic?
Where the local planning authority has issued a decision statement (as set out under Regulation 18 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012) detailing its intention to send a neighbourhood plan to referendum, that plan can be given significant weight in decision-making, so far as the plan is material to the application.
