Question: Which areas can be covered by a Neighbourhood Plan?

Answer: In principle any area can apply to its Local Planning Authority (for Blunsdon this is Swindon Borough Council) to be designated a Neighbourhood Area and have its own Neighbourhood Plan. Neighbourhood Areas can be for only part of a Parish, Cross Parish or Local Authority boundaries, but they cannot overlap with another designated Neighbourhood Area.  If the area is very small e.g. one street, the Planning Authority may suggest it joins with other adjacent streets to create a larger area.
