Planning Policy

The current local planning framework

The current 'saved' Burnley Local Plan was adopted in 2006. It forms the development plan for the borough for non-minerals and waste matters  and is used when determining relevant planning applications.

Minerals and waste planning is the responsibility of Lancashire County Council. Please click the link for information on the Joint Minerals and Waste Local Development Framework

The borough Council has adopted a number of Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) which provide further interpretation and guidance on planning policies and proposals.

The Council has also prepared a number of Conservation Area Appraisals and Conservation Area Management Plans.

The new Local Plan

Burnley's new Local Plan is in the latter stages of production, Once adopted, it will replace the 2006 Local Plan. It will provide a long-term vision, strategic policies, site allocations and development management policies for the borough to 2032. It has been developed using a broad evidence base and has been subject to sustainability appraisal.

Alongside  the emerging Local Plan, an Infrastructure Delivery Plan (IDP) has also been developed. This identifies where new infrastructure will be required to support the Plan and  informs policies on developer contributions, including any community infrastructure levy (CIL) should the Council decide to pursue CIL.

The Council's local development scheme (LDS) provides information on the planning policy documents that the Council proposes to develop up to 2021.

The authority monitoring report (AMR) monitors plan-making progress and how the Council's planning policies are performing against any set targets or key indicators.

Planning policy documents are subject to public consultation and the Council has produced a Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) which, together with legislation, sets how consultation on the development of new documents will be carried out.
