Viability toolkit for neighbourhood planning

Viability testing is an important part of the plan-making process. This toolkit will help neighbourhood groups preparing neighbourhood plans and Neighbourhood Development Orders (NDOs) who are engaging with viability issues. The toolkit uses non-technical language wherever possible and includes an extended glossary of definitions. Groups facing a range of complex viability issues may be eligible for further support from the Government funded Technical Support programme.

Planning Practice Guidance (PPG) is clear that viability must be considered when preparing neighbourhood plans.
