Emergent practices of localism: the role and response of local planning authorities to neighbourhood planning in England

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This paper examines the practices of localism that are emerging in local planning authorities’ (LPAs) responses to neighbourhood planning (NP) in England. It argues that a lack of coherence within the localism agenda has enabled LPAs to rearticulate and resignify key concepts, with three discernible practices of localism and responses to NP emerging: the deflective, the reactive and the integrative. The LPAs have a critical role within the process and employ a range of technologies of government to govern the conduct of groups shaped largely around the role afforded to NP within their local plan.
