Neighbourhood development plans should be based on a proper understanding of the local issues and effective community engagement. This must be evidenced in proportion to the scope and detail of the plan.

We can assist and direct parishes to existing information or advise on obtaining additional data.

A variety of socio-economic facts and figures and specific area profiles are available at MK Insight.
