Basildon District Local Plan Saved Policies 2007

Approved by the Secretary of State via a Direction issued on 20 September 2007. Originally they were part of the Basildon District Local Plan, adopted in March 1998 with Alterations in September 1999.

The Saved Policies represent the local planning policies currently applied by the Council to inform the determination of planning applications in the Borough and enforce planning control. The Saved Policies have been reviewed against the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) published in July 2018 to assess the level of compliance each policy has with the NPPF and the findings are set out with the Compliance Review of the Saved 1998 Local Plan Policies with the Revised National Planning Policy Framework report. These findings should be taken into consideration when determining planning applications.
