What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

The Neighbourhood plan will set out planning policies for Shaftesbury. Planners and councillors will use these guidelines when they decide future planning applications. Members of our local community, rather than the Local Planning Authority, have written the Neighbourhood plan. It will help decision-makers understand what Shaftesbury people believe to be important when planning how the town develops.
