Housing & Community Planning

Housing & Community Planning

Housing and community planning have always been central to our work. From 2014 we have helped 16 communities with their Neighbourhood Plans, working closely with local authority planners.

Significant housing growth is planned for the county. We need to help local communities influence the character of this additional housing so new developments are seen as a success.

ORCC's advice was sound, encouraging and clear. I have no hesitation in recommending the services of the ORCC to any community that is contemplating a Neighbourhood Development Plan.
