The Preston Local Plan 2012-26 (Site Allocations and Development Management Policies DPD) was adopted on 2 July 2015 and covers the period 2012 to 2026.
The role of the Preston Local Plan is twofold:
Together with the Central Lancashire Core Strategy adopted July 2012, forms the development plan for all parts of the City excluding the City Centre (which is covered by the City Centre Area Action Plan).
The Inner East Preston Neighbourhood Plan also applies within the identified Inner East Preston Neighbourhood Area.
It is not the purpose of the Local Plan to grant permission for specific proposals, this will continue to be addressed through the existing planning application process.
Instead, the Local Plan will ensure that appropriate forms of development can occur in the most suitable locations.
It helps provide a level of certainty about what areas will be developed or protected in future and for what purpose. However, the allocation of a site does not necessarily mean that it will be developed straight away.
