Local Plan Submission

Banner - Local plan submission .

Castle Point Borough Council submitted the Castle Point Local Plan 2018 -2033 to the Secretary of State on 2 October 2020 for examination. This is in accordance with regulation 22 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 (as amended).

At this time, the Council is waiting to hear from the Planning Inspectorate as to which Inspector has been appointed to examine the plan. Once this is known, we will update this page accordingly, and we will write to all those who commented on the Local Plan during the Regulation 19 Consultation that took place from December 2019 – February 2020, to let them know the details.

In the meantime, we would like to thank all those who took the time to make representations.

The submission Local Plan and all associated documentation is now available to view below.
