The focus of this article is the development of neighbourhood planning in England, in particular its guiding principle of local people as rational actors. The article looks at neighbourhood planning in its own terms; that is, it looks at the rationality of engagement in a new system that seeks to tip the balance of rationality in favour of communities following the UK government’s aims of overcoming local resistance to the development of new housing. While there is evidence that neighbourhood planning is enjoying some success this is a delicate settlement.
