Wirral's Local Plan
New Local Plan
A new Local Plan is being prepared to shape the future of the Borough between 2020 and 2037.
Regulation 19 Local Plan
The Council is currently preparing a Draft Local Plan for publication before submission to the Secretary of State which will be informed by the results of previous consultation on the Issues and Options document and various evidence studies.
What's the timetable?
The timetable for the Local Plan is set out in the Local Development Scheme (LDS). The Council will publish an updated LDS later this year.
A Local Plan sets out the vision for future development in the borough. Every area in England and Wales should have an up-to-date Local Plan in place and review it at least every five years.
The council is currently preparing the new Local Plan for Wirral which will set out how the borough should be developed over the next 15 years, in line with national policy and legislation.
Local Plans are used to help decide on planning applications and other planning related decisions. In effect, they are the local guide to what can be built where, shaping infrastructure investments and determining the future pattern of development in the borough.
