Neighbourhood planning

4. Advice and support

If you are thinking of preparing a neighbourhood plan, you are encouraged to seek advice from us early in the process by emailing planning.policy@gravesham.gov.uk or phoning 01474 337603.

To help you prepare your plan, we will identify a contact planning officer to provide you with support and technical advice to ensure your plan meets the legal requirements and is in general conformity with the Gravesham Local Plan Core Strategy.

Further advice and support can also be found on the Neighbourhood Planning page of the Planning Portal.

For your information, the following regulations set out the legal process that needs to be undergone to designate a neighbourhood area and prepare and adopt neighbourhood plans and neighbourhood development orders.
