Work on the Core Strategy 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 Core Strategy document is the key Development Plan Document for the Borough outlining the Council's overall approach to development. It will cover a period to 2027, but will be reviewed on a regular basis.

The Core Strategy sets out the long term spatial vision and objectives for the Borough and the strategic planning policies to deliver that vision. The North East Lincolnshire Core Strategy will also include a suite of Development Management policies aimed at addressing identified Core Strategy issues.
