Local Plans and Local Development Frameworks (LDF)
These are the “Planning Bibles” which identify the main sites for future residential and commercial developments and set out the policies against which planning applications will be assessed. Local Plans are being replaced by LDFs over the next few years.
It is very important to put potential development sites forward at the right time and to follow these up during the LDF preparation process to maximise their likely inclusion in the final version.
In some cases it may be appropriate to enter into an option agreement with a developer who will then take responsibility for your site during the LDF process.
We have a specialist, qualified Planning Consultant with extensive experience of this work and local contacts in several Local Planning Authorities. We also have considerable experience in negotiating option agreements with developers.
