Adopted plan

Information about the Local Plan that was adopted on 29 September 2016

The inspector's report

We formally adopted the King's Lynn and West Norfolk Local Plan - Site Allocations & Development Management Policies (SADMP) Plan on 29 September 2016. The adoption statement can be viewed below.

An examination was conducted by an independent inspector, appointed by the Secretary of State.

The inspector's report (received on 22 August 2016) concluded that, with a number of main modifications, the SADMP can be adopted.

What is the SADMP?

The SADMP sets out land allocations and development management policies. It will guide development and change in the borough until 31st March 2026. It replaces the remaining 'saved' policies of the 1998 King's Lynn & West Norfolk Local Plan.

The SADMP (including the main modifications) forms the King's Lynn and West Norfolk Local Plan, together with:

  • the Core Strategy (adopted 2011)
  • any neighbourhood plans that have been made
