10. What is our role?

We have a duty to provide technical advice and support to communities producing a neighbourhood plan. We also have to:

  • agree the composition and designate neighbourhood forums
  • agree the boundary of the area to be covered by the neighbourhood plan
  • organise the independent examination of the neighbourhood plan
  • arrange and fund the referendum
  • formally adopt the neighbourhood plan and bring it into force
