To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, with reference to the Planning for the Future White Paper, updated on 4 February 2021, whether neighbourhood plans will still be able to allocate sites (a) housing and (b) other development to shape development and growth in the local area.

The Planning for the Future White Paper made clear that Neighbourhood Plans should be retained in the reformed planning system, but we will want to consider whether their content should become more focused to reflect our proposals for Local Plans. We intend to publish further details as soon as possible.
