Q. What is the difference between neighbourhood plans and community plans or village plans?

Neighbourhood plans are restricted to land use and development matters, which once adopted will become part of the formal local development plan, should relate to the use and development of land within a designated neighbourhood. In addition, the process and regulations set out in the Localism Act 2011 will need to be followed when preparing a neighbourhood plan. The Councilís Community Plan or Village Plans can cover all things important to a community. As such they can add context to a Neighbourhood Plan and assist interpretation.
