The core strategy will provide the overarching planning policies that will guide where future development takes place.
The Northumberland Local Plan Core Strategy was submitted to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government for independent examination on 7 April 2017.
At its Council meeting on 5 July 2017, Northumberland County Council agreed to formally withdraw the Northumberland Local Plan Core Strategy from the independent examination process. A statement of withdrawal, frequently asked questions and papers from the council meeting can be viewed using the links below.
To meet the requirements of the regulations that relate to the withdrawal of a plan from examination, the submission Core Strategy documents have been removed from our website.
A review of the Core Strategy is now taking place. Once this review has been completed, this page will be updated to provide details of the next steps.
