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.
You are invited to read and comment on the Proposed Submission Local Plan. Where possible, please provide comments online using the Consultation Portal. Alternatively, complete a Comment Form, this can be downloaded and returned by e-mail or post:

For other planning policy evidence documents please see the Local Plan: Evidence Base page. This includes a collection of Policy Evidence Reports which have been prepared to accompany each of the Proposed Submission Local Plan policies. The Policy Evidence Reports explain how each individual policy has evolved, what comments were raised at the previous consultation stage, and how we have considered those comments.
All comments submitted will be available to view on our consultation portal following the end of the consultation period. A Key Issues Report will be published which will summarise the main issues raised for each section and policy of the Local Plan.
We will then submit the Local Plan and associated supporting information (including all comments submitted at the Proposed Submission stage) to the Secretary of State who will appoint a Planning Inspector to examine the Local Plan. The Inspector will consider all representations
The Inspector will publish a report which will set out if the Plan is 'Sound' or 'Unsound'. The Inspector may make recommendations to make the Plan 'Sound'. Subject to the Inspectors Report, the council will formally adopt the Local Plan and it will then be used in making planning decisions.
