Local Plan 2011

The plan contains a comprehensive list of policies relating to all aspects of social and economic development and environmental protection in the district. All policies and proposals are 'saved' beyond June 2009 other than Policies NE8, NE9, T5 and T7 and Proposals 2, 6, 13 and 14.

These saved policies will provide the basis for local planning decisions until they are replaced by the new Local Plan and any other supporting Local Development Documents.

The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) was published in March 2012 and makes provisions for the continued use of the adopted Local Plan for decision making in the district. Due weight may be given to the saved policies in the Local Plan according to their degree of consistency with the NPPF.

In support of the Local Plan we have previously published Supplementary Planning Documents (SPD) dealing with affordable housing and design. These SPDs can be viewed using the links below.

The text and maps relating to adopted Local Plan policies can be downloaded by using the links below.
