What is a local plan?

A local plan sets out a vision for the future growth of an area. It has to tie in with Government policy, regional and local strategies for the economy, transport etc. A local plan includes strategic planning policies to guide development, and identifies sites for new homes, jobs and infrastructure. It sets out what is going to be developed, where it will happen and how it will be achieved. Once adopted, a local plan is used when decisions on planning applications are made in the area it covers.
