*Local Plan to 2033 - Section 2 was adopted by Council on 25th July 2022 (Section 1 was adopted in 2021). This has the effect of replacing the Local Plan Review 2005 and Core Strategy 2011*
What is the Local Plan Review?
The Local Plan Review was one of the documents that make up the development plan for Braintree District.
Please see 'What is the Development Plan?' for further information.
- The Council has now adopted a new Local Plan, which supersedes the Local Plan Review in its entirety.
- The Braintree District Core Strategy has also been superseded. A number of Supplementary Planning Documents have also been published which expand on various local plan policies.
- For the reasons set out in the Interim Planning Policy Statement, at its Full Council meeting on 15th September 2014, Councillors agreed that the Site Allocations and Development Management Plan be adopted for use within development management decision making. The Council's view is that the document should be given appropriate weight in all matters under consideration and that these are material considerations for the Council. This is now also superseded.
- The Inspector's Report on objections to the Local Plan Review was received by the Council on 20th December 2004.
