Site specific policies

×

The Site Specific Policies Local Plan (formally called the Site Specific Proposals Development Plan Document) provides a set of site allocations and policies to meet the vision, objectives and development strategy of the Core Strategy. The plan includes land allocations to meet anticipated development needs relating to housing, employment and mixed use development.

The plan is accompanied by a Policies Map, which together with the housing, employment, mixed use and transport allocations, includes other designations relating to the natural and historic environment.

Many of these designations are determined outside the process of preparing the Local Plan. Others, such as transport schemes, will also reflect decisions and priorities in other programmes and strategies.

The plan does not include polices relating to retail and town centres or leisure, recreation and open space. Further work is needed on these issues. The saved policies of the Unitary Development Plan relating to these issues will remain in force until they can be replaced by new documents. Site specific policies and proposals affecting Wakefield city centre are covered in the Central Wakefield Area Action Plan - this area is excluded from the Site Specific Policies Local Plan.

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 has found the document sound after examining it during 2011/12.

The Council adopted the Site Specific Policies Local Plan on 12 September 2012.

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

The Local Plan, Policies Map, the Planning Inspector's report and information relating to the adoption of the document are available below:
