Neighbourhood Plans Roadmap Guide

Urban Vision wrote the first comprehensive guide to neighbourhood planning for Locality under an early support programme.  The Roadmap Guide is now in its second edition and has proved to be an extremely popular and useful tool for community organisations who have little or no previous experience of planning, as well as providing a useful overview and checklist for more experienced practitioners.

The Roadmap Guide deals with all the stages involved in neighbourhood planning.  The document includes a set of Worksheets covering the following topics: Making the Decision to Prepare a Neighbourhood Plan, the Neighbourhood Area, the Neighbourhood Forum, Community Engagement and Involvement, Building the Evidence Base, Writing the Neighbourhood Plan, Submitting the Plan, and Delivering the Neighbourhood Plan.  The Worksheets also include the Neighbourhood Plan Process diagram, a useful overview of the main steps involved in producing a neighbourhood plan.
