East Lindsey Local Plan Review (ELDC)

Latest Position: as at Autumn/Winter 2023 (no progress since 2021)

East Lindsey Call for Sites and Local Plan Review

What is the 'Call for Sites' in East Lindsey? Autumn/Winter 2023 Update:
Back in 2021 East Lindsey District Council announced a partial review of their existing Local Plan. This is ongoing and started with an 8-week consultation that ran from February to April 2021.  There has been no major progress since that time. 

As part of the review process the Council needs to establish what land is available for development within the District and therefore asked for sites to be submitted by landowners through that first ‘Call for Sites’ process.  Whilst the first stage of consultation has now closed, further opportunities are expected in the very near future, so if you own land get in touch for professional representation without delay. 

Do you own land in East Lindsey? If so, here's what you need to do...If you own land in East Lindsey and would like it to be considered for development in future then now is the time to act.   It is important to be ready to submit sites in advance because the consultation periods are short, have a strict cut-off date and are very often announced with little to no warning!  To put land forward, the Council require a detailed form to be completed which must be submitted together with a location plan and a range of additional technical information relating to the site to demonstrate that it is suitable for residential or commercial development.  Starting this work early will put you at an advantage when the next Call for Sites gets underway by making sure you dont risk missing the deadline. 

Our searches include looking at the range of possible planning constraints and the site's planning history, the likely site capacity and/or future uses, all of which are then combined in a detailed statement to show why your site should be selected and how development of your land relates to existing local and national planning policies. 

If this sounds like a lot, or you don't know where to begin, don't worry - we have an excellent track record of obtaining allocations for our clients through local plan reviews.  Fytche-Taylor Planning can help at every step of the way and are already representing a number of local landowners and developers across the East Lindsey area to their promote sites through this local plan review.  If there is scope to make a planning application before the plan is reviewed, we can handle that too. 

If you would like us to represent you too, we make the process as simple as possible and will deal with all communication with the Council. In most cases all we need to get things started is the location of the site and we can handle everything else from there.  Contact us today for a quotation.

More information about the 'Issues & Options and Call for Sites Consultation' made under the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 (Regulation 18)

The existing East Lindsey Local Plan 2018 sets out at policy SP29 that the plan will be reviewed by 2022 (note: this target has been missed!). The plan sets out the policies against which planning applications are considered and identifies land for certain types of development.

This first consultation was made up of two parts - The 'Call for Sites' and the publication of an 'Issues and Options Paper'.  The paper set out certain issues which were being considered in the partial review and suggested potential options in relation to these. These changes could affect all planning decisions in future within East Lindsey and therefore landowners and developers were encouraged to make formal representations to give their opinion of the changes proposed.   More chances to to this will be available in future and further stages of the review are reached. 

Why choose us to represent you? Fytche-Taylor Planning are highly experienced in preparing the necessary forms, technical information and supporting documentation needed to successfully promote land in local plans.  We have successfully promoted sites in Local Plan reviews across Lincolnshire and the East Midlands. Contact us today or complete the form below to discuss how we can help you promote your site.

What land is the Council looking for?
The Council is seeking the submission of sites suitable for both residential and commercial developments (employment land).

What is the purpose of the Call for Sites?
A ‘Call for Sites’ is a technical exercise to identify potential sites for development, redevelopment and alternative uses. All of the sites submitted to the Council for consideration will be assessed for their suitability, availability and deliverability as a potential allocation within the Local Plan Review.

It’s important to remember that submitting your land as part of the Call for Sites does not in itself determine whether a site should be allocated for development. However, it is important that sites are promoted through the Call for Sites effectively so that they can be included for consideration.

All sites submitted during the Call for sites will be assessed using the information provided, so putting together a strong and detailed submission document for each site is very important and will help demonstrate how your site meets the different criteria the Council are looking for.
