Show all parts of this guide

2. Guidance and support

We can support the preparation of a NDP by the following means:

  • assign an officer as a main contact once area designation is confirmed
  • provide guidance and advice
  • agree and formally designate the neighbourhood area
  • provide information and evidence
  • help with the consultation process
  • check the NDP meets all relevant legislation and regulations including screening for Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA)/Habitats Regulations Assessment (HRA)
  • check general conformity with the Local Plan
  • arrange and pay for an independent examination
  • arrange and pay for a local referendum
  • adopt the NPD as part of the overall Development Plan if supported through examination and referendum
