Local Plan Review 2019

The Central Lincolnshire Joint Strategic Planning Committee is inviting you to get involved with the Local Plan review. The current Local Plan was adopted in April 2017 and continues to perform well in making decisions on development, however, in response to significant changes to national policy, a review is required to ensure it remains up to date. As the basis for future planning decisions, it is very important that local people contribute their views on the plan.

The first stage of the Local Plan review is the Issues and Options consultation which runs for six weeks from Thursday 6 June 2019 until Thursday 18 July 2019. All comments received will help inform the drafting of the revised plan, which will be published for public consultation in early 2020.

To view the Issues and Options consultation and to submit your views, please visit https://central-lincs.inconsult.uk Hard copies of this consultation document and the associated response forms are available during normal opening hours at the main receptions of each District Council and the County Council:

Housing Growth in Medium and Small Villages (Local Plan Policy LP4)

Policy LP4 provides a strategic steer as to what level of growth over the plan period is appropriate for all small and medium villages (as identified in the Settlement Hierarchy in Policy LP2). North Kesteven and West Lindsey District Council provide a monitoring note of the latest position on permissions and completions and remaining growth level for each listed village in their area.
