A Parish or Town Plan is a document setting out how a particular town, village, parish or locality wants to develop over the next decade or so and can cover a variety of social, economic, environmental planning issues. It should reflect the views of all sections of the community, obtained through local consultation. It also includes a plan of action setting out how the priorities will be addressed.

As of December 2018, 41 have been adopted as Local Information Sources.  A framework for adopting Plans as a 'Local Information Source' means that the action points in the completed Plans are material considerations when determining planning applications.
