Local Plan review
King’s Lynn and West Norfolk is a unique, attractive place to live and work. It combines a strong economy with a rich natural and built environment.
In delivering development that supports the economy and housing for current and future generations, we need to balance this with the need to protect and enhance the environment.
What is the Local Plan review?
The Local Plan for the borough is currently made up of:
- the Core Strategy (adopted in 2011)
- the Site Allocations and Development Management Policies Plan (adopted 2016)
These two documents have been reviewed and combined to create a new draft document. The new document sets out a strategy and detail for delivering growth in the borough. It identifies where development should be located and how it should be delivered up to 2036.
The plan review sets out the policies which we'll use to determine planning applications alongside those contained in completed neighbourhood plans. It will also identify sites for housing, employment and other land uses through ‘site allocations’.
The Local Plan review combines both the Core Strategy and the Site Allocations and Development Management Policies Plan and updates it to a 2036 ideal position.
Polices have been reassessed, and suitable new sites proposed and offered for comment in this consultation.
