About the Neighbourhood Plan
The Localism Act of 2011 has given Communities the power to determine what their neighbourhood looks like by developing a "Neighbourhood Plan". The Plan, once approved, will be referred to by Harborough District Council when determining planning applications. This will ensure that important local green spaces are protected from development; that heritage assets are safeguarded and that any new housing or business development is managed and meets local needs in terms of type, location and appearance. Tur Langton Parish Council has embraced these new powers and agreed to prepare a 'Neighbourhood Plan' for Tur Langton, with professional support from yourlocale
