Planning Consultation Portal

The Planning Strategy Team is responsible for all matters relating to planning policy in Redcar and Cleveland (excluding the part within the North York Moors National Park). We prepare the statutory development plan that sets out the long term land allocations and other planning policies that will guide development proposals in the borough and against which planning applications are determined.

Local Plan

Work has commenced on the preparation of a new Local Plan that will eventually replace the Local Development Framework as the statutory development plan for the borough.

The Draft Local Plan was agreed by Cabinet on 21 September 2013, and set out our preferred planning policies, site allocations and other designations that will guide development to 2029. Consultation on the Draft Local Plan took place at the end of 2013. The Draft Local Plan can be accessed via the Planning Consultation Portal.

The Council is now preparing the Publication Version, which will be subject to further consultation in August and September 2014. All of our consultations will be carried out in accordance with the Council's Statement of Community Involvement and will be published through our consultation portal. The timetable for preparing the Local Plan is set out in the Local Development Scheme. The Local Plan will be based upon a sound and robust evidence base to ensure that it promotes the sustainable development that our communities need. The progress we make in preparing our documents and implementing our policies is set out in an Annual Monitoring Report.

Local Development Framework

The Local Development Framework is a series of Development Plan Documents setting out the Council's adopted policies and proposals that make up the statutory development plan for Redcar and Cleveland. Our Supplementary Planning Documents set out guidance for implementing our policies.
