Neighbourhood planning is a key part of the Localism Act. It gives local communities greater power to shape development by having a direct role in the development of planning policies at a local level.
Within Herefordshire, neighbourhood planning can only be undertaken by town and parish councils, with Herefordshire Council providing technical support and assistance and making necessary decisions at key stages.
This map was adopted as the settlement area boundary for the Hampton Bishop Neighbourhood Plan, as adopted at a meeting of the Parish Council on 16th June 2016. The Neighbourhood Plan draft for formal public consultation will be displayed very soon.
