The District Council is preparing a new plan for East Cambridgeshire. The new Local Plan will set out a blueprint for the future growth of the district, looking at how much, where and when development should take place, up to 2031. It will seek to ensure that development in the district is 'sustainable' and meets the needs of the local area. The Local Plan will be the main basis for making decisions on planning applications.

Draft East Cambridgeshire Local Plan

Public Consultation 11th February – 25th March 2013

A draft Local Plan has been published for your comments. The Local Plan is split into 2 key parts:

Part 1: Spatial Strategy and Policies

This section sets out a strategic vision for future growth and a series of detailed policies to guide development relating to housing, employment, environment and climate change, community services and infrastructure.

Part 2: Village and Town Visions

This section comprises a 'Village/Town Vision' for every settlement in the district. It sets out how each settlement should change and improve, and identifies sites for development.

The map on the reverse of this leaflet shows the locations of proposed development.
