A Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP), Neighbourhood Development Order (NDO) and Community Right to Build Order (CRtBO) are tools communities can use to influence how their area develops. NDPs can be used to develop a shared vision, planning policies and allocations for the use and development of land and buildings in their area. It becomes part of the planning policy for the neighbourhood and is used by the council when planning applications are decided.

NDOs and CRtBO allow communities to grant planning permission in full or in outline for the sort of development they want locally. For example, homes, shops, businesses, affordable housing for rent or sale, community facilities or playgrounds.
