'This book is essential reading for the "citizen planner" because it reflects on the experiences of others to demonstrate how neighbourhood planning can meaningfully harness the social capital of communities, as well as the challenges involved.' Chris Bowden, Navigus Planning

Neighbourhood Planning (NP), introduced by the Localism Act
of 2011, is the right for communities to decide the future of the places where
they live and work. This book examines the experience of neighbourhood
planners, analysing what communities have achieved, how they have done so and
what went well or badly. Comparing NP with other forms of community planning
and highlighting the main lessons learned so far, it acts as a navigation tool
for people already involved in neighbourhood planning, as well as those
contemplating participation.
