Central Lincolnshire Local Plan (CLLP)

This was published last year and forms the key basis on which planning decisions are made.


You can find it here  https://www.n-kesteven.gov.uk/central-lincolnshire/local-plan/

The one you want is the one titled Central Lincolnshire Local Plan, Adopted April 2017.

In the Appendices the key ones are Appendix B and the full list of policies

Relevant Policies are listed below shown highlighted in red.(click on the page number in the actual CLLP document to find them quickly)


If you submit comments to WLDC it helps if you can reference a relevant policy and preferably subsection. Do this even if you think your comment is a little tenuous in part (a lot of the applicants statements  tend to stretch the point anyway and are often selective!)

This will help reinforce your message and possibly challenge the planning officers own interpretation!

I will come back with more elaboration later.
