Neighbourhood planning was introduced through the Localism Act 2011, and enables local communities to shape development and growth in their area through the production of a neighbourhood development plan, a neighbourhood development order or a community right to build order.

A Neighbourhood Plan covers a geographic area and can be taken forward by town and parish councils or “neighbourhood forums”. A Neighbourhood Plan, if approved, becomes part of the statutory development plan for that area and will be used in determining planning applications.

The Rolvenden Neighbourhood Development Plan Submission Document will be available to view between 9am Friday the 10th May until Monday the 24th June at 5 pm online or at the locations below:
