Neighbourhood Plan  - 
 
Communities now have new powers to shape development through Neighbourhood Planning, a new right introduced through the Localism Act 2011. 

It allows communities to prepare:
• Neighbourhood Development Plans;
• Neighbourhood Development Orders; and
• Community Right to Build Orders.

Who can undertake Neighbourhood Planning?

If there’s a parish or town council, that is the only body that can lead on neighbourhood planning. If there isn’t a parish or town council, then a community group known as a neighbourhood forum needs to be established to lead the process.

Formby Parish Council and Little Altcar Parish Council will soon start this process.

This section of the Formby On-line Community Centre is available for you to contribute your views and questions.

This presentation is by the Kings Fund. They write "This timeline picks out some of the key trends – from changes in population make-up to advances in technology – that will affect how health and social care is delivered over the next 20 years. Find out more about our trends in health and social care."

There are some challenging changes in front of us in Formby, what are your views?
