Central Lincolnshire covers the combined areas of the City of Lincoln, North Kesteven and West Lindsey, totalling an area of 2116sq.km, with a population of 290,500 (Census 2011).
The Central Lincolnshire Joint Strategic Planning Committee (CLJSPC) was established in October 2009 and the Central Lincolnshire Local Plan Team (previously called the Joint Planning Unit) was established in May 2010.
The Central Lincolnshire Local Plan Team is responsible for producing the Central Lincolnshire Local Plan which was adopted on 24 April 2017 and replaces the Local Plans of the City of Lincoln, West Lindsey, and North Kesteven District Councils.
The Central Lincolnshire Local Plan includes policies for the growth and regeneration of Central Lincolnshire up to 2036. The Local Plan includes policies to make sure that our settlements grow in the right way, ensure we have homes and employment where we need them, and ensure our communities are sustainable, accessible and inclusive.
Prior to being adopted, the Central Lincolnshire Local Plan was subject to several rounds of consultation and an examination, where the “soundness” of the document was assessed. Independent Planning Inspectors reviewed the Local Plan and all the supporting evidence. For more information on the examination, please visit the Local Plan Examination page.
More information on the examination of Local Plans can be found on the Planning Inspectorate website.
