Redcar & Cleveland Planning Strategy

New Local Plan

We will be developing the new Local Plan over the next two years. If you would like to become involved in the development of the Local Plan at the next consultation stage (January 2015) please email your contact details to

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 January 2016, with the date of adoption August 2017. 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.

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.
