Memorandum of Understanding: a toolkit for neighbourhood planners

This toolkit explains the purpose, content and use of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between a qualifying body (QB) for neighbourhood planning and stakeholders critical to the development of a successful neighbourhood development plan or order. In particular, a MOU is relevant to the way in which a QB and their Local Planning Authority (LPA) do business together.

This Memorandum of Understanding toolkit is split into two sections:

  • Part A describes the types, uses, principles and process of developing a MOU
  • Part B provides a template of model clauses which can be used to write an MOU.
