Local Plan Review (2016 - 2036)

Local Plan Pre-submission publication

Consultation opens on Monday 2 September 2019. 

Documentation will be available here when the consultation opens.

The new Local Plan will replace the current Adopted Core Strategy, Site Allocations and Policies Local Plan and Kidderminster Central Area Action Plan in order to produce a single Local Plan for the district.Please see the current project plan for the most up to date timetable.

Once adopted, the new Local Plan will shape the future of Wyre Forest District up to 2036. It will identify where housing, retail and employment land should be located and the infrastructure required to support this growth, such as new roads, schools and health services. The policies in the plan will be used to help make decisions on planning applications in the district.

If we don’t review and adopt an up-to-date Local Plan, development will still happen in our district, but decisions will be taken in regard to the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) without local people having a say on setting local policies.
