Local Development Frameworks

As part of the new planning system in England, local authorities will have to prepare a ‘Local Development Framework’ by 2007. This will replace Local Plans, Structure Plans, and Unitary Development Plans. They will comprise a collection of documents, policies, and proposals which set out a local planning strategy. They require public participation when they are being prepared and developed. This guide explains opportunities you have to influence policies and plans, which in turn influence most types of development including housing and the fate of the local environment and countryside.
