Planning Policy

The 1998 Adopted Local Plan as amended and saved by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government in 2007, together with a number of non-statutory Supplementary Planning Documents form the current development framework for the Borough. 

The Council began preparing a new Local Plan in June 2018. On 22 October 2019, the Council agreed to proceed with the Pre-submission Local Plan and Policies Map to a Regulation 19 public consultation. The associated documents of this meeting can be found on the Agendas and Minutes Library page under 'Council'.

The New Castle Point (Pre-submission) Local Plan and Policies Map is out for a public consultation from Monday 16 December 2019 to Friday 14 February 2020. If you wish to make comments please visit 2019 Local Plan Consultation for details on how to comment and access to the consultation database.
