Adopted Local Plan 2004

The Local Plan for Stevenage, also known as the District Plan, was adopted in December 2004 and sets out the policies and proposals for controlling and allocating development and for protecting and enhancing the environment. Policies in the plan that are relevant to a planning application will be used when determining the application.

Some of the policies in the Local Plan have been deleted. Following the publication of the Government's National Planning Policy Framework, we give "due weight" to the saved policies of the District Plan.

You can view a composite version of the Local Plan by downloading the PDF file below. This version, which is not formally adopted in this form, is for reference and only includes the saved policies. It consolidates the adopted plan in light of changes since 2004 and excludes the supporting text.
