Neighbourhood Plan

Ampthill Neighbourhood Plan

The Coronavirus sadly delayed the launch of the preparation of a Neighbourhood Plan for our Town, however we hope to be launching a consultation soon.  Your views will be integral to this process.  Look out for announcements on how you can get involved.

What is neighbourhood planning?

Neighbourhood planning gives communities direct power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of their local area. They are able to choose where they want new homes, shops and offices to be built, have their say on what those new buildings should look like and what infrastructure should be provided, and grant planning permission for the new buildings they want to see go ahead. Neighbourhood planning provides a powerful set of tools for local people to plan for the types of development to meet their community’s needs and where the ambition of the neighbourhood is aligned with the strategic needs and priorities of the wider local area.
