As well as neighbourhood planning, local communities can also produce other types of community-led plans. This is commonly known as community planning and can include a range of documents such as parish plans and village design statements.
Communities can also undertake evidence documents such as housing needs surveys.
If you are considering undertaking a community plan, it is suggested you contact the Planning Policy team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
