New Local Plan

On this page:


Peterborough Local Plan 

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.

Submission and Examination of Local Plan (March 2018)

The council submitted the Local Plan to the Secretary of State on 26 March 2018. To find out more about the forthcoming examination, please visit the Local Plan Examination page.

The Local Development Scheme (LDS) (August 2017) sets out the timetable for the production of the Local Plan.  The Monthly Update sets out the latest timetable and proposed dates and timetable.

We produced a Key Issues Report which summarised the main issues raised for each section and policy of the Local Plan. These issues were taken in to consideration during the production of the Further Draft Local Plan.

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 have produced a Key Issues Report which summarises the main issues raised for each section and policy of the Local Plan. These issues have been taken in to consideration during the production of the Proposed Submission Local Plan.

We consulted on the Proposed Submission version of the Local Plan between 8 January and 20 February 2018.
