The North East Lincolnshire Local Plan represents the first major statutory planning policy document produced by North East Lincolnshire Council.

The Local Plan comprises of a document setting out the policies and the Proposals Map which show the policies in a graphical form on an Ordnance Survey base map which should be read in conjunction with one another.
The introduction of the new Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act in 2004 means that the Local Plan will be replaced by the Local Development Framework, a portfolio of documents that will set out the Development Plan for the Borough.
