Neighbourhood Planning

Find out about the Boscombe and Pokesdown Neighbourhood Plan

Neighbourhood planning was introduced by the Localism Act 2011. It enables local people to draw up a Neighbourhood Plan for their area and is intended to give communities more of a say in the development of their local area.

What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

A Neighbourhood Plan is a framework for guiding the future development, regeneration and conservation of an area. It is different from other planning documents because it is prepared by the local community.  Once it has been completed through a statutory process and adopted by the Council, the policies in the plan will be used, alongside the Council’s planning policy documents, to make decisions on planning applications in the area.  Read a Quick Guide to Neighbourhood Plans
