Burnley Council’s executive has agreed to recommend that the latest version of the draft Local Plan – the Proposed Submission Plan - be approved by full council when it meets next week.
Local authorities are required by legislation to prepare a local plan to set the local planning framework for their area. Burnley’s Local Plan will cover the whole borough and looks ahead to 2032. The plan will be used to guide decisions on planning applications and areas where investment should be prioritised. It allocates sites that are needed to accommodate new houses and businesses.
