What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

From the South Cambs Website:

Neighbourhood Planning is a way for communities to take a proactive approach to deciding the future of the places where they live and work. It is not a legal requirement but a right, which communities can use to determine the development and use of land and to make other improvements to their neighbourhood, including the development of homes, shops, offices, infrastructure and their design. This can be done through a Neighbourhood Plan, a Neighbourhood Development Order or a Community Right to Build Order, all of which follow similar processes.

How does it affect me?

Anyone living or working in Whittlesford may be affected by future changes, the Neighbourhood Plan is an opportunity to have your views considered.
