Neighbourhood Plans are the best way for communites to influence and shape development.  Find out which places in Bucks are currently working on a plan.

Communities are increasingly finding that having a Neighbourhood plan is the best way to shape new housing demands in their locale. Councils make decisions on planning applications using the Neighbourhood Plan, the Local Plan and any other appropriate planning considerations, so they do hold considerable weight in the planning system. The Neighbourhood Plan should not conflict with the Local Plan as councils give the Local Plan precedence. Nevertheless, within that constraint, communities have the best chance of maximizing their influence over development through a Neighbourhood Plan.
