Local Plan Sections:

The Local Plan includes:

  • An outline of the key issues facing the area.
  • Our vision for how the area should look in 2036.
  • Strategic policies setting the direction of future growth in the area, and covering issues like housing and transport.
  • Detailed policies used in deciding planning applications, such as design and affordable housing requirements.
  • ‘Place-based policies’ which describe how key locations are expected to change over time, divided into four sub areas: Hackney Wick and Fish Island, North Stratford and Eton Manor, Central Stratford and the south of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and Pudding Mill, Bromley-by-Bow and Mill Meads.
  • Details of how we will implement these policies.

The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) sets out the government's planning policies and how these are expected to be applied, whereas the London Plan sets out an integrated economic, environmental, transport and social framework for the development of London over the next 20 - 25 years. Together, these documents form part of the Development Plan for the Legacy Corporation Area.
