The introduction of neighbourhood planning is part of wider challenges to the planning system in the Localism Act 2011. The Act claims to shift decision making from central government to communities and councils. Neighbourhood planning helps town and parish councils to prepare a plan for their area, in close consultation with residents, businesses and other local organisations. Neighbourhood Plans are for the social, economic and environmental well-being of everyone in the community.
The West Dean and West Tytherley Joint Neighbourhood Plan will go to referendum on 17 March 2022.
