Draft Local Plan Consultation

The consultation for the Draft Central Lincolnshire Local Plan has now commenced. 

The consultation runs for 8 weeks from 30 June to 24 August 2021

What is the Draft Central Lincolnshire Local Plan Consultation?

This is the first opportunity to view and comment on the new Local Plan which is proposed to replace the existing Central Lincolnshire Local Plan adopted back in 2017. This consultation follows on from the Issues and Options consultation undertaken in June and July 2019.  Fytche-Taylor Planning Ltd. promoted potential development land for many of our clients in 2019 and are very pleased to confirm that a number of these of these have been taken forward as residential allocations in the new draft plan. 

The plan addresses a broad range of issues that affect all of our lives, such as climate change, housing, employment, shopping and more. The purpose of the consultation is to put forward comments (including specific support or objections) to any of the draft policies, supporting text, site allocations or maps which are presented both in the main plan document and in additional supplementary evidence.

The new draft plan extends to over 200 pages and includes new policies that will affect all landowners and developers in Central Lincolnshire, including the requirement for more energy efficient homes and on-site renewable power generation for all housing developments.

We will be publishing a summary of the key policy changes shortly, so please check back here for further updates.  

This consultation is your chance to comment on the plan before it is finalised for submission to the planning inspectorate for examination next year.

Timing is critical! - Please ensure you contact us so that we can submit a representation on your behalf before the close of the consultation - the Council state that any late submissions will not be accepted.

What are Local Plans?  Planning involves making decisions about the future of our cities, towns and countryside. This is vital to balance our desire to develop the areas where we live and work with ensuring the surrounding environment isn't negatively affected for everyone. It includes considering the sustainable needs of future communities.  A handy guide offering more information is available here

The Central Lincolnshire Local Plan Team is responsible for producing the Central Lincolnshire Local Plan.

The Central Lincolnshire Local Plan was adopted by the Central Lincolnshire Joint Strategic Planning Committee (CLJSPC) on 24 April 2017 and replaced the previous Local Plans for the City of Lincoln, West Lindsey and North Kesteven Districts.
