Redcar & Cleveland Planning Strategy

Local Plan update

The Publication Local Plan was considered by Borough Council on the 31st July 2014. but was not approved. The Council is now considering its options and will set out a new timetable for preparing the Local Plan in due course.

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 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 Borough Council did not approve the Local Plan Publication and, as such, will now be considering options for taking the Local Plan forward. The timetable for preparing the Local Plan will be set out in a revised Local Development Scheme.

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.
