Redcar & Cleveland Planning Strategy
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.
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. These changes are being made in response to the Government's National Planning Policy Framework, which was published in March 2012.
The first stage in preparing the new Local Plan was the Scoping Report, which was published for consultation in November 2012. The Draft Local Plan was agreed by Cabinet on 21 September 2013, and sets out our preferred planning policies, site allocations and other designations that will guide development to 2029. Consultation will take place on this document between 21 October and 2 December 2013. All of our consultations will be carried out in accordance with the Council's Statement of Community Involvement and will be published through our Planning Consultation Portal (see link at the top of this page).
The timetable for preparing our Local Plan is set out in the Local Development Scheme. Our 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.
