Fund description:

The Neighbourhood Planning Grants and Support Programme (2015-2018) is aimed at supporting local communities in England that want to draw up a neighbourhood plan for their area.

Town and parish councils, neighbourhood forums and prospective neighbourhood forums preparing a neighbourhood development plan or neighbourhood development order in England may apply.

Two forms of support are available:

  • Grants of between £1,000 and £9,000 for groups writing a neighbourhood plan or neighbourhood development order.
  • Specific packages of technical support where needed, and a further £6,000 in grants, for groups facing more complex issues.

Groups can also apply for funding to modify their plan, even if they have already had funding to develop the plan.
