Local Plan Review

The Legacy Corporation Local Plan was adopted in 2015 and is the statutory Local Plan for the area. To ensure that it remains up-to-date, the Legacy Corporation has initiated the formal process of reviewing the Local Plan to respond to new evidence that is being prepared on key matters, as well as the changes that have occurred at local, London and national level. 

Review of the  Legacy Corporation Local Plan – Consultation on the Scope of the Review

The Regulation 18 Consultation on the scope of the changes to the Local Plan is now closed. The consultation period ran from 6th November 2017 to the end of June 2018. In addition, the Legacy Corporation also carried out a Call for Sites consultation in order that it can take all potential sites and opportunities into account in reviewing its Local Plan.

We are currently preparing the Draft Revised Local Plan. Once this draft revised Local Plan has been agreed by the Legacy Corporation Board a minimum six week period of public consultation (Regulation 19) will take place providing a formal opportunity for the community and other stakeholders to express their support or identify any part of the proposed changes of the Plan that they consider do not meet the required tests set out in the National Planning Policy Framework that require plans to be prepared in accordance with legal and procedural requirements and are ‘sound’. The Regulation 19 Consultation is anticipated for autumn 2018. The proposed indicative timetable for reviewing and preparing the Local Plan is outlined below.

Local Development Scheme (LDS)

Planning authorities are required to prepare a Local Development Scheme to set out its plans and timescales for preparing and reviewing its Local Plan. The Local Plan was adopted in July 2015 and the process of reviewing it will begin during 2017. The current LDS sets out the broad timescales for the review process and anticipates that this will result in the adoption of a revised Local Plan towards the end of 2019.  

A copy of the current LDS can be viewed and/or downloaded below:
