Help celebrate the successes of neighbourhood plans


sarah brooke-taylor


It has now been 10 years since it became possible to produce a neighbourhood plan. They have been incredibly popular, with well over 1,000 made plans.

Neighbourhood plans have delivered real change – from bringing forward housing to meet local need, to protecting green spaces, and producing better designed places that we can all be proud of.

Locality wants to take the time to celebrate the impact of plans and encourage more areas to create plans.

Complete our survey and share your success stories

We want to hear from groups with made plans that are having a real impact for communities across the country. If you have a made plan that has brought benefits that wouldn’t otherwise have been realised, please complete our survey. While we want to hear about the relevant policies in your plan, we want to hear much more about how those policies have led to change in your area (e.g. delivering affordable housing that otherwise wouldn’t have been built).

You’ll need to complete a 10 minute questionnaire online, by Friday 8 July at the latest. You’ll be entered into our prize draw and could win a £50 John Lewis voucher!

We’ll share your stories on our website, in the media, and on social media to celebrate success and inspire others to make their own neighbourhood plans. By completing the survey you are giving us your permission to use your example and the name of your group.
