Interactive local planning map

With funding from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, we have worked with a software provider called Urban Intelligence to develop an interactive map, to make it easier for the public to find information about local planning. 

The map is a work in progress, and is being published now to gather feedback from the public. It is not a definitive source, with the information not yet being fully accurate or up to date.

The Local Plan policies map and the other information on the map is indicative only and should not be relied on for decision making or legal purposes. The adopted Local Plan Policies Map is still the formal document. 

The information is also not comprehensive and so does not include all constraints such as Tree Preservation Orders or Article 4 Directions. A local land charges search remains the best way to identify restrictions on a property or land.

Currently the interactive map includes the Local Plan policies, constraints such as flood risk, housing and employment site allocations, as well as sites submitted for assessment in the 2022 Call for Sites. Inclusion of the call for sites is for information only. It does not mean that the sites will be taken forward to be allocated in a future Local Plan.
