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 consultation on the scope of the Local Plan Review runs from Monday 6 November 2017 to 5pm on Monday 29 January 2018 and is aimed at gathering views on which policies and other parts of the Local Plan should be included in the review.

Evidence Studies

A key element of the Local Plan review process is ensuring that the evidence on which its development strategy and policies are based is supported by robust and up to date evidence.

Evidence studies will be made available here when it becomes available. 

Local Plan Review Process

Following the first stage, the Legacy Corporation will collate, analyse and consider all responses, using them, along with the new evidence, to produce a Consultation Report that will help to define what parts of the Local Plan will be changed. A period of on-going engagement will then follow as proposed changes to the Local Plan are developed, which will include a re-run of the four workshops. Relevant information will also be made available on the on-line consultation portal.

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.
