Neighbourhood planning

Neighbourhood planning gives communities direct power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of their local area.

Neighbourhood planning is about enabling rather than restricting development. A Neighbourhood Plan may address a wide range of social, economic and environmental issues (such as transport, heritage, housing and employment issues). The number and form of the issues addressed are dependent on what the forum considers to be relevant to the neighbourhood.

Your Neighbourhood Plan must be in line with the National Planning Policy Framework, the London Plan, Lambeth's Local Plan and Planning Policy Evidence Base.
