New Waveney Local Plan

Waveney District Council is preparing a new Local Plan for the District (excluding the Broads Authority area). The new Local Plan will review and update our existing Local Plan (Local Development Framework).

The new Local Plan will identify where growth should be located and how it should be delivered, and set out the planning policies used to determine planning applications.

Timetable for the Local Plan

  • Sep 2015 to Jun 2016: Issues and Options
  • Jul - Sep 2017 First draft plan
  • Spring 2018: Final draft plan for consultation and submission for examination
  • Summer 2018: Examination hearing
  • Autumn 2018: Inspector’s report and adoption

Join our mailing list to be kept up to date on the new Waveney Local Plan

The Statement of Community Involvement sets out how and when people can have their say on planning policies and planning applications.
