Local Plan Review 2019

The Local Plan Review is proposed to replace the Local Plan adopted in 2017. It addresses a range of issues such as climate change, housing, employment, shopping and more.               

The review was begun with an Issues and Options consultation undertaken in June and July 2019 followed by a Draft Local Plan consultation undertaken between 30 June and 24 August 2021.

Draft Local Plan consultation responses are now available to view on the Consultation Hub where they are listed by respondent alphabetically.  A quick link to the Consultation Hub responses is provided below. The report below provides a summary of key issues raised and the consultation responses summary provides a list of each policy or subject area and who commented on it.

The Draft Local Plan and the range of evidence documents that support the policies in the plan can be viewed on the Local Plan Consultation Library page. An interactive map showing the sites proposed for allocations and other designations in the plan, and PDFs of the Policies Map can be viewed on the Local Plan Consultation Maps page.

If you wish to be kept informed of future stages of the Local Plan review you can either provide your contact details to the Local Plan team via e-mail to talkplanning@central-lincs.org.uk, in writing to the address on the contact page or register your details on the Consultation Hub.
