General conformity

Neighbourhood Development Plans and Neighbourhood Development Orders need to be in general conformity with the strategic policies of the relevant Local Plan. This means that neighbourhood policies cannot go against the main policies of the local authority for their area. It is up to the inspector who examines Neighbourhood Development Plans and Orders to check that they are in general conformity with the strategic parts of the Local Plan.
