Neighbourhood planning fund and support programme

Grants of up to £7,000 will be available to help community groups produce neighbourhood plans. Producing neighbourhood plans is a right given to communities under the Localism Act 2011 – communities can produce a plan  about development in their neighbourhood, where they would like development and how they would like it to look. You can find out more about neighbourhood plans here.

The grants are available through Locality and you can apply for them from 1 May 2013. More information on the fund will be available from 15 April 2013.
