Have your say on Central Lincolnshire’s Local Plan

Date Published: 06 June 2019

The Central Lincolnshire Joint Strategic Planning Committee is inviting residents to get involved with the Local Plan review. This review will replace the adopted Local Plan for the area, which will set out a vision for growth to 2040.

The Local Plan is the main document in the development plan used in determining planning applications across Central Lincolnshire. It covers the districts of City of Lincoln, North Kesteven and West Lindsey, and is developed in partnership between each of the districts and the County Council.  

The current Local Plan was adopted in April 2017, however a review is required to ensure it remains up to date in response to significant changes to national policy.

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 and until Thursday 18 July 2019.

All comments received will help inform the drafting of the revised plan, which will first be published for public consultation in early 2020.

The final version of the Local Plan will be published in late 2020 before being submitted to the Secretary of State for examination by a government appointed planning inspector. It is anticipated that the Local Plan will be adopted in 2021.

To view the Issues and Options consultation and to submit your views, please visit the Central Lincolnshire Planning Policy Consultations website.

Alternatively, a response form can be downloaded from the Portal and these can be submitted to talkplanning@central-lincs.org.uk.

Hard copy response forms may either be returned to one of the District Council receptions during normal working hours or may be sent to: Central Lincolnshire Local Plan Team, District Council Offices, Kesteven Street, Sleaford, NG34 7EF.
