Automatic Plan Branch creation for both pull requests and feature branches

Is it possible to automatically create plan branches on both a new pull request and a new feature branch creation? 

Environment: Git / Bitbucket, Bamboo, Maven

No, rationale behind this decision was "if you already have plan branch when new branch created in Git, why do you need another plan branch when PR created?"

If the Pull Request was created from a Fork, then a branch plan won't have already been created.

Noel is absolutely correct here. If you use a fork-based contribution model for your team (no branches allowed on central repo), then you do not get builds and feedback from those builds until the PR is created. Much earlier on, you want to push commits to your fork and get build feedback prior to creating your pull request.

I think Bamboo should be trained to monitor new branches on all forks of a central repository and create new branches based on activity on the fork, rather than pull request events which occur near the end of the lifecycle of a feature or bugfix. This will allow better continuous delivery.
