Central Lincolnshire Local Plan

Local Plan Consultation

The consultation on the Draft Central Lincolnshire Local Plan has now commenced.

This is the first opportunity to view and comment on the new Local Plan which is proposed to replace the Local Plan adopted in 2017. This consultation follows on from the Issues and Options consultation undertaken in June and July 2019.

Central Lincolnshire Local Plan


The aim of the Local Plan is to prepare plans and policies that help create places that are sustainable and attractive to live in. The Local Plan should work together with other plans and policies, such as economic, housing and environmental strategies.

The delivery of new homes and jobs for Central Lincolnshire up to 2036 will now be provided for through a new single Local Plan. The Central Lincolnshire Local Plan will progressively replace the Local Plans of the City of Lincoln, West Lindsey, and North Kesteven District Council’s.

The Central Lincolnshire Local Plan team comprises of officers who were drawn from existing planning policy teams within City of Lincoln Council, North Kesteven District Council and West Lindsey District Council. This team was first established in May 2010 and works closely with other officers across the partner authorities in the preparation of planning policy work.

Adopted Central Lincolnshire Local Plan

The Central Lincolnshire Local Plan 2012-2036 was adopted by the Central Lincolnshire Joint Strategic Planning Committee (CLJSPC) on 24 April 2017 and it now replaces the Local Plans of the City of Lincoln, West Lindsey and North Kesteven District Councils.
