What is the Local Plan?
The Local Plan represents the Council approach towards shaping future sustainable development in the Borough. The Local Plan covers both strategic land allocations and wider development management policies that are important when deciding planning applications.
The Local Plan covers a range of matters including the number of new homes that are needed and where they should be located; the amount and proposed location of new employment land; protection and improvement of important open areas and provision of new ones; provision of new infrastructure and improvement of town centres and community facilities in the Borough.
The Planning team can provide a hard copy of the Local Plan and Policies Map on request. In accordance with the Town & Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 there would be a charge of £25.00. Please contact the Planning team to request a copy.
