Structure of the Hyndburn Local Plan

The new Local Plan is the name given to a series of documents in which the Council will explain how the Borough will be developed and grow to 2036. Once complete it will fully replace the 1996 Local Plan for Hyndburn.

The new Local Plan comprises 4 key Development Plan Documents (DPDs):

  1. The Core Strategy DPD (first adopted 19 January 2012, now subject to review)
  2. The Accrington Area Action Plan DPD (adopted 19 January 2012)
  3. The Development Management DPD (adopted 11 January 2018); and
  4. The Site Allocations DPD – currently in preparation
Timetable for production of the Local Plan

The Council sets out its forward programme of work in the latest Local Development Scheme (LDS). The LDS was last updated in June 2018 to cover the full period of preparation of the Core Strategy Review and Site Allocations DPD to 2021
