Neighbourhood planning allows community groups to influence future development in the place where they live or work. It encourages local people to shape where development will go, what it is & what it will look like. Local planning committees will have to follow these neighbourhood plans when making decisions that will affect the area.
Good design is fundamental to the success of neighbourhood planning. It creates sustainable places where people want to live and work; supporting stronger communities and local economies. We want to empower your community group, town or parish council to improve the design of your place through neighbourhood planning. By putting good design at the heart of the process we will assist you in achieving your aspirations to unlock the full potential of your project.
How can we help?
We can provide design support to community organisations, town or parish councils at any stage of their neighbourhood or community led planning project. Helping local people to have an equal say in the design of their neighbourhood.
Our support can include:
- Supporting the assembly of your neighbourhood group to involve all stakeholders
- Creative community consultation
- Stakeholder engagement workshops
- Design & planning awareness training
- A critical friend to independently review plans & visions
- Encouraging meaningful discussion on areas of conflict
- Brief & vision development workshops
- Bidding for funding to develop your plan
- Urban design workshops
- Tours to develop your understanding of your neighbourhood
We are able to draw on our panel of built environment experts to provide specialist, technical advice where required.
We support organisations and community groups across Yorkshire and the Humber with their built environment projects. We also run workshops with local community groups to help them initiate the neighbourhood planning process.
