A Neighbourhood plan is a document drawn up by a community which establishes general planning policies for the development and use of land in a neighbourhood, such as:
- where new homes, leisure facilities and business premises should be built,
- what type of development they should be and what they should look like.
A group of residents from Kingsclere, including Parish Councillors, commenced work on a Neighbourhood Plan in 2013. Residents were consulted through questionnaires, meetings, attendance at village evens and formal consultations. After five years work, the Plan was voted on in a Parish Referendum on Thursday 6 September 2018. 85% of voters on the day said 'yes' to the Neighbourhood Plan.

The Parish Council have taken the decision to take down the Kingsclere Neighbourhood Plan website. This is because it was created prior to 23rd September 2018 and is therefore not compliant with The Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) Accessibility Regulations 2018. It was agreed by the Parish Council not to update this website as it now a historic website and as such it would not be cost effective to do so. The NP evidence base and supporting documentation has been archived in the Parish Council offices.
