About us

Yorplan was established to help communities across Yorkshire achieve excellence in their community led plans, with a specific focus on neighbourhood planning and the suite of new ‘community rights’ established by the Localism Act 2011.

Our approach for every group we work with on community planning is to put together the right team for your particular set of needs. Some communities have a long history of community planning, for others this is their first experience of it. Some communities are faced with the opportunity to plan positively and proactively for their places without the threat of large scale house building or other development, others quite the opposite.

So for each community our approach is to help you assess your situation, decide if neighbourhood planning is the right tool to help you achieve your aims and then to ensure that the right team of experts is available to make your Plan as effective as is possible and ‘fit for purpose’.
