7. Writing the plan

The policies in the Neighbourhood Plan have to meet a certain standard in order to be effective and to meet the necessary requirements for them to become part of the planning framework for the area.

There is no standard way or template for writing a Neighbourhood Plan and it is for community groups to decide on the approach that they take.

This Writing Planning Policies guide to writing planning policies for neighbourhood plans contains real plan examples and worksheets to help you in the planning policy process.
