Update on the preparation of the Wakefield District Local Plan 2036

We are currently preparing a new statutory development plan for the district called the Wakefield District Local Plan 2036. The following consultations have occurred to date:

Early Engagement and Call for Sites – October to December 2017

Initial Draft – January to February 2019

We are currently preparing the Publication draft of the plan. Unfortunately, due to the current Coronavirus emergency, the Publication consultation scheduled for May 2020 has had to be postponed until October 2020. Postponing the consultation will delay the submission of the draft plan to the Secretary of State for Examination until early 2021, and the adoption of the plan until early 2022.
