How is a Neighbourhood Plan Created?

  • Local opinions canvassed via questionnaire, meetings, workshops etc
  • Steering group analyses the data collected from residents, planning experts and other relevant bodies to form the basis of the plan
  • Local policies are drawn up in the light of this information
  • The Steering Group drafts the Neighbourhood Plan
  • Legal consultation on the draft Neighbourhood Plan
  • Draft Plan submitted to Wokingham Borough Council
  • Charvil votes on adopting the Neighbourhood Plan
  • If approved by Wokingham Borough Council, the Neighbourhood Plan becomes a Legal Document
