Wakefield Local Development Plan 2036
Initial Draft Local Plan Consultation – January 2019
The Initial Draft Local Plan Consultation for the Wakefield District Local Plan 2036 has taken place. This was held from Thursday 10 January to Wednesday 20 February 2019. CPRE West Yorkshire submitted comments as part of this process and look forward to being part of the consultation process that will inform the next stage of preparing the Local Plan for Wakefield District.
The Initial Draft Plan sets out the Council’s planning policies for securing growth, investment, sustainable development and improving the environment in the district. The Local Plan provides the planning framework of policies, site allocations and designations for the district covering the period to 2036. This framework will be used to assess the development of the area during this period. CPRE West Yorkshire are keen that these plans include policies which both protect and enhance the predominant feature of the Wakefield District – it’s countryside.
