User Experience of Neighbourhood Planning in England

This report has been produced as part of the support contract for neighbourhood planning and timed to feed into a review of neighbourhood planning in England. At the time of this research an estimated 1,019 groups had either started or expressed an intention to embark on neighbourhood planning.

The primary purpose of the research reported here is to develop further understanding of user experiences while undertaking the process of developing a Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) and/or Neighbourhood Development Order (NDO)/Community Right to Build Order (CRtBO); jointly referred to here as neighbourhood planning. The research will help to inform future approaches taken towards neighbourhood planning, including how to improve and increase its effectiveness as well as the shape that support offered to those using the right should take.

In structure, the report sets out the findings derived from primary data collection involving a telephone survey of 120 neighbourhood planning groups and six focus groups. The report seeks to understand how the neighbourhood planning groups have fared, to reflect on the conditions in which neighbourhood planning operates and what steps might be taken to improve it.
