Localism in practice: making the most of Community Led Planning

New guidance examines how local authorities are making the most of Community Led Planning to enable communities to plan for their future.

A new best practice guide for local authorities has been published by Action for Market Towns and ACRE, with a foreword written by Greg Clark MP, Minister for Decentralisation and Communities.

Making the most of Community Led Planning: a best practice guide for local authorities will be of particular interest to officers and elected members who want to take forward the government’s new localism measures by building on existing experience and best practice.

Examining best practice from across England, the guide shows how local authorities can support communities at different stages during the development of their plan. They can help them to research their neighbourhood, understand the relevance of statutory plans and provide communities with the confidence to produce high quality plans with achievable actions that have local support.
