Masterplans are a tool in the planning process used to set out a framework and supporting guidance for development.

The Council’s Local Plan Part 2 requires that masterplans are produced for a number of the housing land allocation sites and that the masterplan is in place before planning consent is granted for development on any part of the site.

These masterplans are a material consideration in the review of and decision making on all planning applications for development on individual sites.

Masterplans for the following sites have been adopted by the Council:

  1. Gib Lane development site
  2. Roe Lee development site
  3. North Blackburn development site
  4. Bank Hey development site
  5. Holden Fold development site

Masterplans are currently being prepared for:

  1. East Darwen Corridor
