Local Plan Review
We want to know what matters to you. Take part in the consultation and share your views by clicking below or email [email protected].
The current North East Lincolnshire Local Plan was adopted in 2018.
The Council is required to review the Local Plan within five years of its adoption. An initial decision was made to commence a review of the Local Plan in 2020, however, due to proposed planning reforms this work was paused.
In October 2021 Cabinet committee agreed that work on the review should be restarted. The review will be carried out in several stages taking around three years to complete.
In line with the Government reforms to the planning process, the Local Plan review will seek to:
- Simplify the Local Plan.
- Focus on local priorities.
- Not repeat national guidance.
- Provide a framework for development in North East Lincolnshire to be a place where people are proud to live, work, invest and visit.
An initial assessment was undertaken in 2019 using the Planning Advisory Service Toolkit to identify which areas of the adopted Local Plan needed review. This identified that many areas of the Plan are working well and remain consistent with national planning policy and therefore do not need to be included in the review.
