Hyndburn’s New Local Plan

Adoption of the Core Strategy and Accrington Area Action Plan 2012

Following the independent examination of the Core Strategy (Development Plan Document) and Accrington Area Action Plan (DPD), where both documents were found ‘sound’, the Council adopted the DPDs as part of the Borough’s Development Plan on 19 January 2012.

The documents will be used to determine planning applications and in the case of the Core Strategy, guide future planning documents.

The adopted DPDs and other relevant accompanying documents can be viewed here:

Both documents contain policies which supersede those of the Saved Local Plan. See Appendix 7 of the Core Strategy and page 21 of the Accrington AAP for further details.
