Local Plan (2019)

The Council adopted its Local Plan Partial Review (LPPR) Publication Policies, February 2017, on 11 September 2019. This incorporates both the ‘main modifications’ recommended by the Inspector and the ‘minor/additional modifications’ published by the Council. This includes a new Foreword written by the Leader, Cllr Elizabeth Campbell.  Watch a webcast of the meeting. Further details of the meeting, and the decision, can be seen on the Meetings page.

The Council is in the process of producing a single updated Local Plan 2019 to include all these modifications by the end of September 2019, but until this is published, the LPPR Publication Policies (February 2017) must be read alongside the Consolidated Table of Modifications. The documents below now form the Council’s Local Plan and will be used to determine planning applications in the borough.

Foreword (September 2019)

LPPR Publication Policies (February 2017)

Consolidated Table of Modifications (August 2019)

Local Plan Proposals Map (September 2019)

The adopted LPPR replaces parts of the Consolidated Local Plan (2015) and the remaining saved policies within the borough’s Unitary Development Plan (2007) as set out in Chapter 41 of the LPPR.

The Council will shortly be publishing a single document which includes all of the constituent parts of borough’s Local Plan. This will include the adopted LPPR and the remaining unchanged parts of the Consolidated Local Plan (2015).  However, until this has been completed both documents should be read together.

A short briefing note has been prepared which sets out the principal changes introduced by the LPPR.

LPPR Briefing


As required by Regulations 26 of the Town and County Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 (as amended) the Council must make available:

IIA Adoption Statement (September 2019)

These documents are also available for inspection during normal office hours at Kensington Town Hall and localy libraries. See the Library pages for details.
