Emerging planning policies and guidance

South Ribble Local Plan and Central Lancashire Core Strategy

Due to significant changes in the national and sub-regional policy landscape since the adoption of the Central Lancashire Core Strategy and South Ribble Local Plan, a review of these plans is now necessary.  Further work is also required on the Gypsy, Traveller and Travelling Showpeople Accommodation Assessment (GTAA) which will be addressed as part of the review of the Local Plan.  The timetable for production of the documents can be found in the Local Development Scheme.

Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP)

In March 2013, Samlesbury and Cuerdale Parish Council applied for the designation of a neighbourhood area boundary with a view to developing a neighbourhood development plan.  This boundary was approved following public consultation.  The Parish Council later decided not to pursue the development of a neighbourhood development plan, however, the designated neighbourhood area boundary remains designated unless it is superseded by a further application.  The designated area can be viewed here.

If you are interested in producing a neighbourhood development plan, please contact us on planningpolicy@southribble.gov.uk to arrange a meeting for guidance, including how to apply for initial designation of your proposed area boundary.  Information about funding available through the Department of Communities and Local Government is available here.
