SKDC Local Plan has finally been submitted

Hot off the press from SKDC…

The South Kesteven Local Plan was submitted to the Secretary of State for Housing Communities and Local Government on Tuesday 15th January.

The Submission Local Plan provides updated planning policies, as well as setting out spatial allocations and designations throughout South Kesteven.  It is the same as that approved by Council on 24th May and has been submitted together with the 345 valid representations made during the period of statutory public consultation.

The Local Plan Submission documents and supporting documents can be viewed on the Council’s website (www.southkesteven.gov.uk/newlocalplan) and will be accessible electronically at the Council’s offices and libraries during normal office hours.

In addition, reference hardcopies of the relevant documents will be available for public inspection in local libraries and at South Kesteven Council Offices at Grantham, Bourne, Stamford and Market Deepings (Deepings Community Centre, Douglas Road, Market Deeping, PE6 8PA Mon-Fri 9.30-14.00)

The South Kesteven District Local Plan will now be subject to an independent examination, which will be conducted by the Planning Inspectorate.  The public hearing should normally commence within 14 weeks of submission, although it is possible that it will be longer. Once the date is confirmed, all details relating to the examination process will be advertised, made available online and sent to all respondents.

If you have any questions relating to the local plan, please contact 01476 406438
