Local Plan Update

Tendring District Council Publication Draft Local Plan Consultation 16 June 2017 to 28 July 2017

The new Local Plan will guide future development in the Tendring area and is critical for creating new job opportunities, attracting investment in new and improved infrastructure, protecting the environment and ensuring that new homes are built in the right locations and achieve the right standards of quality and design.

This Plan covers a broad range of local policies that will guide decisions on planning applications and development in the District up to 2033 and beyond.  This will replace the policies in the adopted Tendring District Local Plan (2007). 

We are consulting on the following Local Plan Documents:

- Section 1 - North Essex Authorities Strategic Plan

- Section 2 - Tendring District Council Policies

- Section 1 - Sustainability Appraisal

- Section 2 - Sustainability Appraisal

- Section 2 - Sustainability Appraisal Addendum (Consultation from 14 July 2017 - 25 August 2017)

Please click here for all of the above consultations.

What happens next?

Based on comments received the next version of the plan will be written and submitted to the Secretary of State. A further “pre-submission” consultation will be held at this stage. The Local Plan will go through an examination where an Inspector will consider whether the Plan has been positively prepared, and that its policies are justified, effective, pass the legal tests and conform to national policy.

Adoption of the Plan following the examination the Inspector may recommend changes to the Local Plan. At this stage a further consultation will be carried out. The Council will then adopt the Tendring Local Plan which will form part of the development plan for Tendring District. 

Previous Consultation - Issues and Options (2015)

We consulted on the Issues and Options setting out different issues and options for future development in the district up to 2033.  The consultation exercise took place for six weeks between 1 September 2015 to 13 October 2015.

The Tendring District Adopted Local Plan

We have a Local Plan that was adopted in 2007 but aspects of this are considered to be out of date and not in accordance with national planning policy. Until we formally adopt a new Local Plan, the planning policy situation is complex. Elements of the 2007 adopted Local Plan will remain in force and will be used in determining planning applications, where relevant. However, as the new Local Plan progresses it will begin to have more "weight" in the planning process in deciding planning applications and guiding new development across our District, alongside other 'material considerations', including national planning policy. The level of "weight" we can attach to the adopted 2007 plan and new Local Plan will vary so if you are thinking of submitting a planning application, you are strongly advised to discuss proposals with us beforehand (see Advice Before Making an Application for more information).
