About Neighbourhood Planning
Neighbourhood Planning is a new option for communities to decide the future of the places where they live. Neighbourhood Planning can include a number of planning documents prepared by local communities:
- Neighbourhood Development Plans
- Neighbourhood Development Orders (NDO)
- Community Right to Build Order (CRtBO)
Neighbourhood Plans, NDOs and CRtBOs can be used to add more detail to the policies in the Council’s plans, or cover other aspects appropriate to the aspirations of the community living in the area.
Once ‘made’ by the Council, the Neighbourhood Plan, NDO or CRtBO will form part of the Development Plan for East Cambridgeshire and will be used in determining planning applications in the area.
