Guide on Neighbourhood Planning and Community Led Planning for Shropshire Council

In 2012, Resources for Change were asked to share their expertise in community led planning by writing a guide to help communities in Shropshire through the neighbourhood planning process. In Shropshire, the Councils approach to a Neighbourhood Plan is a ‘light’ approach, through which community led plans become part of the statutory planning process by way of their inclusion within local area Place Plans.

The guide provides a clear explanation of what a community led plan actually is and how it compares with a Neighbourhood Plan, provides details of the process that needs to be followed to develop a community led plan that can be endorsed by Shropshire Council, as well as signposting to useful resources.

The finished guide is now available the Shropshire County Council’s website
