Blackburn with Darwen local plan 2018-2036: call for sites consultation

Service information

Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council is preparing a new Local Plan, which will set out the planning strategy for the borough and allocate a range of sites for development to meet identified needs covering the period 2018-2036.

To support this work, the Council is inviting landowners, developers, agents, local residents and other interested parties to submit for consideration details of sites that may have potential for future development. Site(s) that may be appropriate for allocation for any of the following types of land-uses will be considered:

  • Housing;
  • Employment;
  • Retail, leisure and/or community uses; and
  • Mixed use schemes (providing a range of different types of development).

Land put forward for other purposes will also be considered.

A separate form must be completed for each site that you wish to put forward for consideration.

Please fill out all sections of the form that relate to your suggested use(s) for the site. For sites considered appropriate for a range of uses, please select the ‘mixed-use’ option and fill in all sections of the form that are relevant. An OS scaled map clearly showing the location and boundaries of the site being proposed should be submitted with your completed form.
