New 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 over the next 15 years (to 2033). Once complete it will fully replace the 1996 Local Plan for Hyndburn.
The new Local Plan comprises 4 key Development Plan Documents (DPDs):
- The Core Strategy DPD (adopted 19 January 2012)
- The Accrington Area Action Plan DPD (adopted 19 January 2012)
- The Development Management DPD (adopted 11 January 2018); and
- The Site Allocations DPD (work to commence 2018 and anticipated to be adopted 2021)
The Council sets out its forward programme of work in the latest Local Development Scheme (LDS). The LDS will be updated in June 2018 to cover the full period of preparation of the Core Strategy Review and Site Allocations DPD.
The latest stage of consultation on the Local Plan (Regulation 18 of the Core Strategy Review and Site Allocations DPD) took place February – April 2018. Further details are available here, or via the link to Page 3 below.
