Neighbourhood planning offers a critical analysis of community-based planning activity in England, framed within a broader view of collaborative rationality and its limits. From the recent experience of drawing up parish plans, and attempts to connect these to formal policy frameworks, it identifies lessons for future planning at the neighbourhood scale. It is not a manual on community planning practice, nor does it provide a formula for producing parish or neighbourhood plans. But in the context of the latest ‘localism’ agenda in England it, first, examines the potential contribution of neighbourhood planning to building a ‘collaborative democracy’ and, second, asks how much movement towards genuine local partnership, and consensus around development decisions, can be achieved through the rescaling of ‘statutory’ planning.
