Bristol Local Plan Review Draft Policies and Development Allocations Consultation

Closed 24 May 2019

Opened 18 Mar 2019

Overview

The Bristol Local Plan Review will update existing policies for deciding planning applications, guiding development in the city over the next twenty years, building a better Bristol.  The reviewed Local Plan will help deliver the new homes and jobs we need, shape our city for the future and safeguard the environmental assets we value most.

The Draft Policies and Development Allocations Consultation responds to the results of the 2018 consultation and differs from the previous consultation as it contains detailed policies and sites for development.  

We are asking for your views on these changes to the Bristol Local Plan.

Why We Are Consulting

We are asking for your views on changes to the Bristol Local Plan, which will update existing policies for deciding planning applications, guiding development in the city over the next twenty years, building a better Bristol.

What Happens Next

The results of the consultation will feed into a publication version which will be made available for formal representations.

After the publication stage, the plan will be submitted for examination and will begin the process by which it may be formally adopted by the council.

Once adopted, the plan will provide policies for determining planning applications, and provide a vision for the future of the city and a framework for addressing housing needs and other economic, social and environmental priorities.
