This page look at the studies and evidence reports that formulate the planning policies and proposals in the Northumberland Local Plan. You can use the navigation bar below to quickly direct you to the right section.
Following the withdrawal of the draft Northumberland Core Strategy from the examination process on 7 July 2017, the draft local plan and all documents relating to it have been removed from the local plan section of the website so as to accord with Regulation 27 of Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012.
The Council is reviewing a number of issues and the supporting documents should not be relied upon in the local plan context. However, information in these documents may remain relevant in the context of planning applications in order to inform decision making. The information may also be of value to other organisations and residents. These documents are therefore published here for that purpose. It should be noted that there may be references in these documents to the now withdrawn Core Strategy.
Therefore, given the reasons for the withdrawal of the draft local plan, comments, conclusions and recommendations made within the documents should be treated with caution. Following the review being carried out, a number of these documents will be updated, or replaced, as a new Local Plan for Northumberland is prepared.
