Local Plan Part 2

Service information

The Local Plan Part 2 was adopted in December 2015. Alongside the previously adopted Core Strategy (which is Part 1 of the Local Plan), it aims to shape the future development of Blackburn with Darwen in order to create jobs, attract and retain a skilled labour force, and strengthen the borough's competitive position in the North West. It identifies strategic land allocations which are essential to delivering these objectives; and sets out development management policies which will be used in assessing planning applications. The Local Plan Part 2 replaces the "saved" policies of the 2002 Blackburn with Darwen Local Plan (as set out in Appendix 1 to the adopted Plan).

Copies of the submission documents and other supporting documents which, in the opinion of the Council, were relevant to the preparation of the Local Plan Part 2 are still available to download here
