The Coventry Local Plan was formally adopted by Council on 6 December 2017 following receipt of the Planning Inspectors Report. The Local Plan is the statutory document used by the Council to determine planning applications. The Local Plan can be read online, or downloaded as a printable version. The adoption statements, including the evidence examined in public, can be found in the Library. Please use our interactive online policies map to view our Local Plan policies map.
Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) that support the Local Plan and its policies can, if adopted, be found in the SPDs page. This page includes SPDs currently in draft form, which will also be listed on our consultation page.
Government have provided updated guidance around how local authorities should consult and engage with local communities and stakeholders when developing new planning policies and guidance. The updated guidance in-full is available on the Planning Practice Guidance web pages, and relates specifically to consultation during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
At this time, we do not have any scheduled consultations relating to the Local Plan, including draft supplementary planning documents. Should this situation change and the above referenced guidance remains in place, we will review the most appropriate ways of engaging and consulting with local people and stakeholders to ensure everyone who wants to be involved can be.
In the meantime, if you have any questions regarding the above information, the Local Plan or supplementary guidance, please contact the Planning Policy Team.
