Liverpool City Council is preparing a new Local Plan, which will guide development in the City over the next 15-20 years.  Once adopted, the Local Plan will replace the Liverpool Unitary Development Plan (UDP) as the current statutory development plan for the City.

Between December 2013 and April 2014 the City Council invited suggestions on the content of the Local Plan. The City Council has considered the representations received and is inviting comments on a draft Local Plan which includes a spatial vision and strategic priorities for the future development of the City, detailed City Centre policies and development management policies to guide development, and site allocations for housing and retail development. It is considered that the draft Local Plan has addressed the majority of representations positively by wherever possible reflecting the concerns and issues raised in respect of policy content, designations and allocations.

It is not a complete initial draft plan as the City Council is still waiting for evidential studies to be finalised and it does not include a full Policies Map. The final formal Publication version of the Local Plan will take into account the completed evidence studies and the representations made following this consultation stage.

A copy of the draft Local Plan and all associated response forms, including a “Call for Sites” form is available via the City Council website at: www.liverpool.gov.uk/consultation. Copies of the draft Local Plan and forms are also available, during normal opening hours, at:

  • Municipal Buildings One Stop Shop, Dale Street, Liverpool
  • Central Library, William Brown Street, Liverpool L3 8EW
  • All Community Libraries across the City

All Representations must be returned to the City Council by 5 pm, 31st October 2016.  

Representations can be made by one of the following methods:

  • Via the City Council’s Consultation Portal
  • e-mail to: Development.Plans@liverpool.gov.uk
  • post to: FREEPOST RRUK-HRTT-LATT, Liverpool City Council,  Planning and Building Control, Municipal Buildings, Dale Street, LIVERPOOL L2 2DH.
