Redcar & Cleveland Planning Strategy (Local Plan)
If you would like to become involved in the development of the new Local Plan at the next consultation stage please register your contact details on our consultation portal.
This consultation runs from 27th June to 8th August 2016.
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.
New Local Plan
The publication of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) has led to a change to the local planning system, with the Council now required to prepare a new single local plan. The Redcar & Cleveland Local Plan will be prepared over the next two years to replace the existing development plan documents (see below). The current timescales for preparing the Local Plan is for the consultation on the Scoping Report to take place in July 2015 and to consult on the Draft in May 2016. Further information can be found in the Local Development Scheme below. To find out how consistent our existing policies are with the NPPF, please take a look at this planning guidance note.
