Consultation on the Local Development Proposed Plan 2020

We have noLDP coverw reached an important stage in preparing our new Local Development Plan (LDP). As a key part of the plan preparation process, we have published a Proposed Local Development Plan (PDF | 9MB).

Following the Main Issues Report consultation, which sought views on the big issues that the new LDP will need to address, the Proposed Plan is the next step towards obtaining a plan set to tackle these issues.

The Proposed Plan sets out suitable land allocations which will help to deliver appropriate development within the National Park, and policies that will be used to make future decisions on applications for planning permission.
