New Neighbourhood Planning funding and support package launched

Announcement out today on the launch of the 2018-2022 neighbourhood planning grants through Locality

Expressions of interest for the new grant open from 3 April
Good news in particular for groups that are:

ü  Allocating sites for housing
ü  Including site-specific design codes in your plan
ü  A designated business neighbourhood plan
ü  A cluster of three or more parishes writing a single plan
ü  A Neighbourhood Area with a population of over 25,000
As if you tick any of these criteria you can apply for an additional £8,000 on top of the basic grant of £9,000, and you will also potentially be eligible for the technical support packages
