  • The new Local Plan Online Proposals Map is available for you to view. This interactive mapping system provides spatial representation of planning policies currently applicable in the Borough of Darlington which make up the emerging new Local Plan.
  • The new planning system places greater emphasis on community involvement. The Council's policies for this are set out in the Statement of Community Involvement (SCI).
  • Through the Localism Act 2011, the Government has introduced the right for communities to prepare Neighbourhood Plans. It is one way communities can help to shape the future of the places where they live and work. Neighbourhood Plans have to meet a number of conditions before they can be put to a community referendum and legally come into force as part of the statutory planning framework.
