Brian Wilson Associates offers support to Neighbourhood Plan groups, helping them plan and progress their work in ways which meet the requirements of the planning system and associated legislation.
He has supported groups in West Sussex, Hampshire, Dorset and Cornwall. A number of these now have completed (‘made’) Neighbourhood Plans. Most recently he helped Sutton Poyntz neighbourhood forum to reach the stage where they can submit their draft Plan.
No community should under-estimate the effort and perseverance required to develop a successful plan. The reward, however, is more local say about the future of the locality and its development.
Brian and his associates can, amongst other things, help with: creating a project plan for the NP process; identifying and testing NP objectives; developing a sound evidence base; advising on policy options; and drafting key documents required by the process.
