Neighbourhood planning is a legal right for communities introduced through the Localism Act 2011. Communities can shape development in their areas through the production of Neighbourhood Development Plans. Neighbourhood Development Plans become part of the Local Plan and the policies contained within them are then used in the determination of planning applications.
The Twyford Neighbourhood Plan was approved at a local Referendum in January 2022 and now forms part of the local planning policy for the area.
The finalised documents relating to the Neighbourhood Plan can be found on the South Downs National Park Authority website
The Parish Council’s project website for the work involved in the development of the Neighbourhood Plan has a host of other interesting information and can be found at Twyford Neighbourhood Plan Please note that this information is now archived and will no longer be updated.
