Local Plan Partial Review

The Council is undertaking a Partial Review of the existing Local Plan in accordance with the timetable set out in the Council's Local Development Scheme (LDS):
  • Issues and Options consultation (Pre-Regulation 18) Tuesday 15 December 2015 to Tuesday 9 February 2016
  • Draft Policies consultation (Regulation 18) Friday 28 October to Sunday 11 December 2016
  • Publication Policies consultation (Regulation 19) Thursday 2 February to Thursday 16 March 2017
  • Submission and examination (Regulations 22-25) May to October 2017. On Friday 5 May 2017 the Council submitted the Local Plan Partial Review and supporting documents to the Secretary of State for Communities for examination. Examination hearings will commence on 27 February 2018. To see all of the examination information and documents, please click the hyperlink.
  • Adoption (Regulation 26) Expected Late Summer/Autumn 2018

This timetable is subject to change.

The Council’s general approach is to give minimal weight to the emerging Local Plan Partial Review policies as material considerations when determining planning applications. The Council will make determinations on planning applications in accordance with Section 38(6) of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004, paragraph 216 of the National Planning Policy Framework, paragraph 019 of the National Planning Practice Guidance on Local Plans and other relevant legislation, policy and guidance.

Existing Local Plan

The existing Local Plan sets out the vision, objectives and detailed spatial strategy for future development in the Royal Borough up to 2028 along with specific strategic policies and targets, development management policies and site allocations.

The Consolidated Local Plan (July 2015) combines alterations since the Core Strategy adoption (December 2010) incorporating the Pubs & Local Character Review (October 2013), the Miscellaneous Matters Review (December 2014), the Conservation & Design Review (December 2014) and the Basements Review (January 2015).
