The Bromley Local Plan was adopted in January 2019. The Local Plan includes policies covering a range of areas, including housing, employment, sustainability and community uses. There are also a number of site allocations which identify particular sites to be developed for a type and amount of uses to meet objectively assessed need and help to deliver the borough’s economic, environmental and social objectives.

Local Plans should be reviewed every five years in accordance with planning legislation. Since the Local Plan was adopted, there have been changes to national and regional policy. This includes the adoption of the new London Plan which has higher housing targets and various other policies which have implications for Bromley’s local planning policies.

Call for sites consultation

As a first step in the process of updating the Local Plan, the council  undertook a call for sites consultation exercise, between August and November 2021. As part of this exercise landowners, developers and  other interested parties were invited to put forward potential development sites for allocation, for development of housing, employment and retail uses or any other uses.

The council will assess all sites submitted as part of the Local Plan preparation process. Where sites are considered to warrant allocation, these will be included in a future consultation exercise.

Currently, there are no dates for consultation on the next stage of the Local Plan review. If you would like to be added to the council’s planning policy database, to receive updates about future planning policy consultations (including any future consultations on the Local Plan review), please email the planning policy team.
