Work on the Allocations Development Plan Document ceased with effect from 11 June 2012. The Council is now preparing a New Local Plan.
For further information please see the New Local Plan link under Related content.

The Allocations Development Plan Document will identify the key sites for development in North East Lincolnshire together with those sites that will be safeguarded for specific uses.

The main focus for the document will be to identify land for the development of:

  • housing (meeting all housing needs)
  • employment and business
  • retail and leisure
  • the safeguarding of sites and facilities that form an integral part of inclusive sustainable communities

Once it is adopted, the Allocations Development Plan Document will form part of the statutory Development Plan for the Borough.


The Allocations Development Plan Document will undergo several stages of public consultation. An overview of the progress of the document is given in the table below. This has been revised from the anticipated timetable set out in the Local Development Scheme 2007 and will be updated on a regular basis.
