RAD has worked with over 50 communities in Derbyshire over the last decade to produce local community led/parish plans.
We are able to offer guidance and support in launching a CLP and throughout the process, which typically takes around 14 months.
RAD work with the Community led planning toolkit devised collectively by RCCs. The Toolkit is avilable to participating communities in hard copy.
Since the Localism Act came into Law in April 2012, Parish Councils and communitiy forums in unparished areas have the right to produce Neighbourhood Plans and Neighbourhood Development Plans. These are planning documents that fit within the local planning framework. RAD can provide support and guidance to Parish Councils wishing to emabark on the process. Like Community led planning of all kinds it is expected that communities will take around a year or 18 months to complete a Neighbourhood Plan. There are also quite a few statutory hurdles in the process.
