Issues and Options

Want a quick outline of what this consultation is all about? Watch our introductory video.

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'. The consultation is in the form of an online survey, which matches the questions set out in the main consultation paper.
