Planning Our Own Neighbourhood
Residents have had little say in how they want their communities to grow or change. The Localism Act changed the Planning System and gives local people more control.
‘Neighbourhood Planning’ might not get you fired up but what these changes in practice mean is that, together with others in our area, we can make things happen:
- Get better bus routes
- Create a community green space or orchard
- Design affordable housing for the area
- Run a local enterprise, like a shop, pub or even cinema
- Take a local service into our own hands, such as the recycling collection.
To improve the quality of the places we live and work in.
To produce a vision for the future.
We should decide what happens in our community.
It’s something communities have been doing for thousands of years.
The process can be fun! You’ll get to meet new people and discover hidden talents
