The Borough Local Plan was adopted Council in September 1997. By law, although the end date of the Borough Local Plan has passed, its policies have been saved automatically.
The saved policies were originally intended to be replaced by our emerging Local Development Framework – including the Core Strategy Local Plan, the Site Allocations Local Plan and Minerals and Waste Local Plan – once adopted.
In February 2012, Council approved a revised schedule of saved policies and annexes. Policies listed in this schedule still form part of the development plan and are a material consideration when deciding planning applications.
Any content related to residential alterations and extensions in the annexes of this plan has been replaced by the design guide for residential alterations and extensions adopted in 2017.
