First, perhaps you could explain the steps that you took to follow the 
guidelines on the page:


before carrying out this import:

http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/changeset/15772466 ?

What is the benefit of having the bunch of nodes that you have so far 
uploaded in OSM?  Surely nothing exists yet until the "neighbourhoods" 
that "https://www.gov.uk/neighbourhood-planning" talks about actually 
have a referedum to decide that they exist, and then when that happens 
they can add themselves?  I don't see how your import helps.  For 
example, I live in an area that has a parish council - they already do 
stuff locally.  I'd expect any "neighbourhood planning" malarkey to be 
just another funding stream for them in addition to the slice from 
council tax - surely there's no need in that case for any extra data in 
OSM at all?

Also, how does this "proposal" relate to previous changesets such as 
e.g. this one:
