Developing Bromley’s Local Plan

Proposed submission Draft Local Plan - consultation

The council consulted on its proposed submission Draft Local Plan between 14 November and 31 December 2016 in accordance with Regulation 19 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012.

This Draft Local Plan was agreed by the council’s Executive in July 2016 for consultation with local residents and the wider community. The document builds on the earlier Local Plan consultations, in particular, the Draft Policies and Designations Document in 2014 and the Draft Allocations, Further Policies and Designations’ in 2015 as well as the ongoing engagement with the community, partner agencies and other local authorities. This is intended to be the final statutory consultation before the Local Plan is submitted to the Secretary of State for independent examination.

The Local Plan will set out the council’s vision and objectives, and spatial strategy for the borough to the 2030s, and includes site allocations for housing and education use, together with the policies to guide development in the borough, and consideration of future planning applications. When adopted, the Local Plan will replace the saved Unitary Development Plan policies. 

The Local Plan is intended to be used alongside, as well as in general conformity with the relevant national planning policy and the London Plan, and to focus on the important and distinctive local matters and characteristics to be considered in planning decisions in the borough.
