Data mapping tool allows users to view and update information on the progress of neighbourhood planning across England
A tool developed by data mapping consultancy Boilerhouse WebTools allows users to view and update information on the progress of neighbourhood planning activity across England.
Public and professionals can add and modify their own neighbourhood planning data on the map. Neighbourhood planning was introduced through the Localism Act 2011 and came into effect in April 2012. Neighbourhood plans empower local people to get the type of development they want for their community. More and more communities are taking up the right to produce one, and following the required process to have these adopted as part of the statutory development plan managed by the local planning authority for the local area. Find out more on the GOV.UK website.
Local planning authorities are obliged to publish information on neighbourhood plans in their area on their websites. The data used to create the original map published on this site was collected by the Department for Communities and Local Government from local authority websites.
Public and professionals can use our updating tool to add and modify their own neighbourhood planning data on the map. There is a range of support available for communities getting involved in neighbourhood planning, which you can find in the Support section of this site.
