Funding to help neighbourhood planning groups in urban and deprived areas develop local neighbourhood plans.
Funding to help communities in urban and deprived areas plan their local neighbourhoods will almost double, Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick has announced (10 August 2020).
From today, government grants to individual neighbourhood planning groups in both urban and deprived areas will increase to £18,000. This follows funding increasing from £9,000 to £10,000 in May to help with the effects of coronavirus.
The funding boost will strengthen the voice of local communities in some of the most disadvantaged areas in England.
