Issues and Options Consultation Launched (NOW CLOSED)

*PLEASE NOTE THIS CONSULTATION ALONG WITH CALL FOR SITES IS NOW CLOSED (AS OF FRIDAY 14th FEBRUARY 2020)*

Our Central Lancashire Local Plan Issues and Options Consultation

The Central Lancashire Authorities of Preston City, South Ribble and Chorley are undertaking a review of the development plan(s) for the area and are working towards the preparation of a Joint Local Plan for Central Lancashire. This will be a single Planning document containing the Council’s vision and objectives. It will set strategic and local development management policies and site allocations for future development across the three authorities.

Once adopted, the Local Plan will guide the future growth and development in the Central Lancashire area and replace the Central Lancashire Core Strategy (adopted in 2012) and the Local Plans/Site Allocations and Development Management Policies of the 3 Central Lancashire Authorities (all adopted 2015).

We are now consulting on the first document to be prepared which will help to shape the policies developed in the Local Plan. This is called the 'Central Lancashire Local Plan Issues and Options Consultation'.

We are also calling for a third round of Call for Sites submissions, a Call for Sites - Part 3, in which you can submit sites to use for homes, jobs or other uses.

Got any questions about the Local Plan before take part? We might have answered them already in our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page.

There are many ways for stakeholders and residents to get involved and find out more:
