The Localism Act enables communities to produce their own formal plans for a defined area (the neighbourhood area) under the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012.
They are discretionary, but a community has the right to decide to prepare such a plan if it wishes to. Neighbourhood plans are prepared by the community and set out local planning policies in relation to that area. They have to be in line with national and local planning policy, have to be independently examined and then voted upon in a local referendum as to whether or not they should be formally adopted.
Please use the left hand navigation for detailed information on the neighbourhood plans which are moving forward within Lichfield District.
The Alrewas, Longdon and Armitage with Handsacre neighbourhood plans were made on 9 October 2018 and have now been adopted as part of the development plan in the district.
The referendum for the Elford neighbourhood plan will take place on 29 November 2018.
