From the website:
Neighbourhood planning gives all communities (such as Wendover) direct power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of their local area. They are able to choose where they want new homes, shops and offices to be built, have their say on what those new buildings should look like and what infrastructure should be provided, and grant planning permission for the new buildings they want to see go ahead. Neighbourhood planning helps local people ensure that they get the right types of development for their community which results in balancing the needs of the neighbourhood in line with the priorities of the wider local area.
Neighbourhood planning is not a legal requirement but a right which communities in England can choose to use.
