We are preparing a new Local Plan, this is an important document as it will determine what Peterborough and the surrounding villages will look like in the future and how it will become an even better place to live, work and visit.
The new Local Plan will replace the adopted Development Plan Documents (DPD). It will not replace any adopted Minerals and Waste DPDs.
We consulted on the Further Draft version of the Local Plan between 16 December 2016 and 9 February 2017. All comments can be viewed on our consultation portal.
We are currently reviewing all comments submitted. We have produced a Key Issues Report which summarises the main issues raised for each section and policy of the Local Pan. Any changes arising from the consultation will be made to the next version of Local Plan.
Previous Stage (Preliminary Draft January 2016)
In January 2016 the council consulted on the Preliminary Draft version of the Local Plan. Consultation ended on 25 February 2016. All comments can be viewed on the consultation portal.
We produced a Key Issues Report which summarised the main issues raised for each section and policy of the Local Pan. These issues have been taken in to consideration during the production of the Further Draft Local Plan.
All comments received at the Further Draft stage will be reviewed and any changes arising from the consultation will be made to the draft Local Plan. A Proposed Submission version will be published in 2017 for public consultation. This version of the plan will then be submitted to central government who will appoint an independent planning Inspector to carry out a public examination into the document.
