Our Adopted Local Plan

Our Adopted Local Plan and its supplementary guidance help guide planning decisions, making sure that new development is of the highest quality, is in the right places and delivers the aspirations of our communities, and the aims of the National Park.

Plans are updated every five years and we’re currently in the process of creating our next plan, which will be adopted at the end of 2016.
