Central Lincolnshire Draft Local Plan

You are invited to have your say on The Central Lincolnshire Draft Local Plan (consultation ends on 24 August 2021).

The Central Lincolnshire authorities are preparing a new Local Plan to replace the Local Plan adopted in 2017. This consultation follows on from an Issues and Options Consultation which was held in June and July 2019.

This revised plan builds on the strengths of the existing plan and looks to address the changing challenges particularly arising at a national and global level.

Since the last plan was adopted in 2017, the expected impacts of climate change have come into sharper focus and the implications of not acting now will have disastrous effects. The Central Lincolnshire authorities have committed to responding positively to climate change and the Local Plan is one of many areas where this can be addressed. However, this plan is not only about climate change, but about all of the other things we value about our area and the wider challenges we face. The plan also addresses housing, employment, shopping, design, landscape, the natural and historic environment, infrastructure and more. We welcome any views and comments on any of the draft policies, supporting text, or maps throughout the document and any associated evidence.

This is your chance to comment on the plan before it is finalised for submission to the planning inspectorate for examination. The Draft Local Plan is available to view online at:

· The Central Lincolnshire consultation website: https://central-lincs.inconsult.uk/CLLP…/consultationHome


· The Central Lincolnshire Local Plan website:

These policies are underpinned by a range of evidence documents:  www.central-lincs.org.uk/consultation-library

We recognise the challenges that the new policies particularly relating to climate change present and so are particularly interested in understanding what you think.

The consultation runs for 8 weeks from 30 June to 24 August 2021 and you can submit your comments by:
