The Local Plan

Current Local Plan policies and plans

The Local Plan isn't one document. The policies and plans below make up the current Local Plan. Some of these are still in the process of being adopted.

When a plan is adopted, it doesn't mean the land outlined on the plan will definitely be built on.

In most cases, developers will still need to apply for planning permission and have their applications considered on an individual basis.
