Local Plan - Adopted 8th May 2014

The Fenland Local Plan (formally known as the 'Fenland Local Plan - Core Strategy') contains the policies and broad locations for the growth and regeneration of Fenland over the next 20 years.

Local Plan

In preparing our plans for the future, here in Fenland we are doing things differently. We think our plan is short, simple but effective. It focuses on the important key issues and guides development, but does not stifle it. It gives freedom and flexibility as to where, how and when growth will occur. Overall it gives local communities the maximum opportunity to influence development within their district.

We consulted on the changes that arose through the hearing sessions, known as the proposed 'Main' and 'Minor' modifications, for six weeks from 14 January to 5pm 24 February 2014. The Inspector has considered all comments received in relation to the 'Main' modifications and issued her final recommendations in the form of an Inspector's report on 9th April 2014. See the 'Public Examination' section below for further details.

The Inspector found the plan 'sound' subject to the incorporation of the 'main' modifications. The Inspector's Report was presented to the Council's Cabinet and subsequently, to Full Council on 8th May 2014, where the Local Plan was formally adopted.
