Neighbourhood Development Plans
Under The Localism Act, and Neighbourhood Planning Regulations, communities across Gloucestershire are composing their own Neighbourhood Development Plans (NDPs). An NDP is a legal planning document which is used to assess planning applications and guide some infrastructure provision at the local level.
Whenever transport issues are being considered in Gloucestershire the developer, highways engineer or other design and delivery agent should screen the made Neighbourhood Plans affecting the area in question. This will give useful background data, a local perspective on traffic and transport issues and, often, careful consideration of possible solutions - including locally supported small schemes. Therefore the NDP is both a vital information resource and a fundamental element of the development plan, enabling more tailored solutions in relation to the local transport network.
