The Government has announced that it will continue to support communities that want to develop Neighbourhood Plans with a funding package of nearly £23 million over the next five years. The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) says that it will make available funding of around £5.5 million each year from 2018 until 2022 to support local neighbourhood planning groups who want to have more of a say over development in their area.
You can receive grants and support to help you complete your neighbourhood plan.
There are two types of support available in the 2015-2018 programme:
- Grants of up to £9,000
- Technical support packages provided by our partner, AECOM, and an additional grant package of £6,000 (bringing the grant ceiling amount available to £15,000).
