Throughout this month and beyond, we’re celebrating 10 years since the first neighbourhood plans were made.

From transforming an 18th-century cottage into a thriving community hub, to creating green spaces for people to meet during the pandemic, made neighbourhood plans have been helping communities to shape decision making in their local area since 2013. In a series of case studies, we’ll be reflecting on the successes of neighbourhood planning over the past decade.

If you’re interested in finding out more about the neighbourhood planning process, watch our video or take a look at our step-by-step neighbourhood planning roadmap. And if you’d like to tell us about your neighbourhood planning success stories, please get in touch at or use the hashtag #10YearsOfNP on social media.
