Supporting Communities in Neighbourhood Planning Programme 2013/14-2014/15

Neighbourhood planning is a new right for neighbourhoods introduced through the Localism Act 2011. Local neighbourhoods are now able to produce: • Neighbourhood Development Plans (a vision and policies for the future development of the neighbourhood area); • Neighbourhood Development Orders (giving permission for development in compliance with the order); and • Community Right to Build Orders (giving permission for small scale, site-specific developments of community facilities). There are over 220 neighbourhood planning frontrunners. We estimate at least a further 100 non frontrunners are currently doing neighbourhood planning. The Department for Communities and Local Government (“DCLG”) is seeking bids from organisations (“tenderers”) that can demonstrate they have the necessary expertise, skills and experience to deliver a two-year programme (from 1 April 2013 until 31 March 2015) including: • Direct support to neighbourhoods to help them through the stages of a neighbourhood planning. • Delivery of a Grant Administration Scheme to contribute to costs. • Sharing of learning (through case studies etc).
