Local Government

Volume 464: debated on Wednesday 10 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what adopted local plans and unitary development plans are in force for each local planning authority, broken down by (a) region and (b) county; and what the month of adoption was in each case. (152746)

Adopted local plans and UDPs are in force for all local planning authorities. Those plans which were adopted before September 2004 are “saved” until September 2007. Those adopted after September 2004 are “saved” for three years after adoption. Where local authorities have adopted development plan documents these will replace the local plans/UDPs in whole or in part. A table has been placed in the Library of the House showing the adoption dates of local plans and UDPs.
