Broad Concept Plans
Major allocated sites need a Broad Concept Plan (BCP) to ensure comprehensive planning and the delivery of key infrastructure.
Policy LP7 - Urban Extensions, of the Fenland Local Plan 2014 requires a Broad Concept Plan (BCP) to be prepared for each of its major allocated sites (either a Strategic Allocation or a Broad Location for Growth). This is to ensure these areas are planned and implemented in a coordinated way, linking to the timely delivery of key infrastructure.
The BCP will form a template that all future planning applications are expected to conform to.
A number of BCPs have been prepared. South Wisbech, East Wisbech, East Chatteris and West March have all received 'in principle' approval from FDC's Planning Committee as required by Policy LP7.
