Local Development Plan

The Council is currently preparing a new Local Plan for the Borough which, once adopted, will supersede saved policies in the current Replacement Local Plan (2005).

The Plan will set out polices, proposals and site allocations to guide future development in the Borough. It will enable the Council to manage growth while protecting key areas. Among other things, the Plan will include policies to deliver:

  • Housing and economic growth requirements;
  • Retail, leisure and other commercial development;
  • Infrastructure for transport and utilities (such as energy, telecoms, and water);
  • Local community facilities (such as local shops, schools and healthcare);
  • Conservation and protection of the natural and historic environment; and
  • Climate change and provision of renewable energy.

Consultation

The Brentwood Draft Local Plan public consultation took place between February and March 2016. A consultation statement setting out details about the consultation and how people responded will be available to view here shortly.

There are currently no Local Plan documents open to public consultation. Past consultation documents can be viewed online using the Consultation Portal link below:

Timetable

The Local Development Scheme (LDS) sets out the Council's timetable for preparing the Local Plan and other planning policy documents. The current version was approved in July 2015 and can be viewed below.

 

Supporting Information

It is vital that the Local Plan is supported by up-to-date and robust evidence. Several technical studies have been undertaken to inform the emerging Local Plan and provide evidence when considering planning applications. The Plan is also supported by other documents set out below.
