Local Development Orders


Local development orders (also known as LDOs) are designed to simplify the planning process under certain circumstances. They are intended to create certainty and save time and money for those involved in the planning process. Local development orders are prepared by the Council to extend permitted development rights, or grant planning permission, for specific development proposals or classes of development in a particular area. They are particularly useful for areas that have a defined boundary.

Local development orders do not override restrictions such as those relating to a listed buildings, and conditions can be attached to developments permitted by them.

There are currently three Local Development Orders in place in North East Lincolnshire:

Cambridge Road, Grimsby LDO

Following a period of public consultation, which ran from 23 July to 20 August 2015, Cabinet committee (9 March 2016) approved the adoption of the Cambridge Road, Grimsby Local Development Order (PDF, 9MB) .

The adopted document relates to the land associated with the former Western School (now demolished) and covers an area of approximately 9.5 hectares at the junction of Little Coates Road and Cambridge Road in Grimsby. It grants outline planning permission (planning application reference DM/0677/15/LDO) for the type of development specified within it, subject to certain conditions.

Preparation and review of local development orders

There are currently no plans to prepare any additional local development orders. However if, we identify the need to prepare additional local development orders details will be provided on this page. This will include information relating to the site location and an estimated timetable for their preparation.

We will monitor development on the sites covered by the adopted local development orders and review the content of the documents where necessary. Details of any review, along with an estimated timetable will be published on this page.
