Consultation on the Planning for the Future - Core Strategy and Urban Core Plan for Gateshead and Newcastle upon Tyne (Pdf, 110mb) Proposed Submission Document closed on 21 October 2013. We are currently reviewing all representations received.
Newcastle Local Plan
All local authorities are required to produce a Local Plan with the aim of providing a more flexible planning system that adapts to changing priorities and which seeks to secure sustainable development.
The Local Plan sets out how we will plan the future development of Newcastle. It will guide new developments to appropriate locations, while protecting our natural environment and built heritage, and it sets out our expectations to developers who are submitting planning applications.
- Core Strategy and Urban Core Plan
- Site allocation and Development Management (DPD)
- Unitary Development Plan
- Benwell Scotswood Area Action Plan
- Walker Riverside Area Action Plan
The evidence that supports our emerging Local Plan is contained in our Local Plan Library
Community Infrastructure Levy
The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) allows local authorities to charge a tariff, at a locally set rate, on many types of new development. We have paused our work on this while we finalise the Core Strategy and Urban Core Plan
Neighbourhood Planning enables communities to prepare plans and development proposals to influence future development in their area. This includes Neighbourhood Plans, Neighbourhood Development Orders and Community Right to Build Orders.
Planning Policy Guidance
Other Planning Policy guidance documents include: Newcastle's Annual Monitoring Review, Statement of Community Involvement, Local Development Scheme and Supplementary Guidance.
