What is a Parish Council?
Local councils are the first tier of governance and are the first point of contact for anyone concerned with a community issue.
They are democratically elected local authorities and exist in England, Wales and Scotland.

Do you have a Neighbourhood Plan?
Neighbourhood Plans were introduced by the Localism Act 2011. They empower communities to shape the development and growth of a local area.
Once adopted, they become part of the Development Plan, and contribute to planning application decisions in that area as well as protecting green spaces. A Neighbourhood Plan cannot block development that is already part of the Local Plan, but it can shape where that development will go and what it will look like.
