We are undertaking a consultation on draft guidance designed to help local communities decide whether they want to prepare a neighbourhood plan and if they do how to go about it.  Neighbourhood plans are a community-led initiative giving local communities power to prepare a part of the development plan for their parish or group of parishes. As neighbourhood plans carry substantial weight in planning decision making, there are certain steps that must be followed during their preparation. Draft guidance has been prepared to assist local communities and guide them through each stage.

We're proposing some changes to our Council Tax support scheme that helps people pay their Council Tax if they're on low incomes. The changes will be our scheme into line with changes made to Housing Benefit  and Universal Credit and should ensure we continue to provide a fair and equitable scheme for all claimants.
