Neighbourhood Plan (N3P)
What is a Neighbourhood Plan?
Neighbourhood planning was introduced in the Localism Act 2011. It is an important and powerful tool that gives communities statutory powers to shape how their communities develop.
A neighbourhood plan is a document that sets out planning policies for a local area. It’s used to decide whether to approve planning applications, including new buildings or changes to existing buildings.
The Newton and Noss Neighbourhood Plan has been written by the local community, the people who know and love the area, to ensure the community gets the right types of development, in the right place.
The Newton and Noss Neighbourhood Plan was voted for on 28th June 2018 at a public referendum and adopted by South Hams District Council on 19th July 2018. It is due for review in 2023.
