IMPORTANT CHANGE; From March 2012, changes to national planning policy replaced the term 'Local Development Framework' (LDF) with the term 'Local Plan'. Any historic references to the LDF in our documentation should be now considered as if they read 'Local Plan'

Work started in December 2014 on a new Local Plan that will provide the planning framework for the future growth and development of the Basildon Borough area until 2034. The new Local Plan will identify land for housing, businesses, shops and leisure, as well as areas for protection, such as open space and sites important for wildlife.

As part of the consultation on the Draft Local Plan, representations were received from developers in relation to specific sites and alternative proposals, providing the opportunity to consider some alterations to the housing site allocations in the Local Plan, and consequently the distribution of development across the Borough.

On 29 September, the Council approved a further round of consultation on the New and Alternative sites, which ran for six weeks from 3 November to 15 December. 2016.

The evidence from this consultation, in addition to any comments received during the previous consultation, will be used to inform a revised final draft which will be considered by the Council in early 2017 for approval to submit to the Government for consideration through a public inquiry.
