Central Wakefield area action plan

×

The Central Wakefield Area Action Plan develops the spatial vision, objectives and overall strategy set out in the Core Strategy (the main overarching document of the Local Plan, also known as the Local Development Framework) into more detailed policies and proposals relating directly to central Wakefield.

Central Wakefield is a geographical area that covers the whole of the city centre and also residential and employment area immediately beyond the current inner ring road. The city centre is a major shopping and commercial centre of sub regional importance. It has also been identified as the main driver of the district's economy in the Community Strategy (Developing Knowledge Communities).

Preparing the document has included wide ranging consultation and engagement with the public and interested parties, details and documents of the main stages are available below.

A senior government planning inspector found the document sound after examining it during 2008/09. ​

The Council adopted the Central Wakefield Area Action Plan on 17 June 2009

The document now forms part of the Local Plan, the statutory development plan for Wakefield District, and replaces the Wakefield City Centre policies in the Unitary Development Plan.

The document and maps, the Planning Inspector's report and information relating to the adoption of the document are available below:

The Wakefield Street Style Design Guide is available to view Monday to Friday, 8.30am - 5pm, at the Customer Access Point at Wakefield One, on Burton Street Wakefield, behind the County Hall.
