Draft Local Plan 2021

The Council is in the process of preparing a new Local Plan for the Borough to replace the adopted Core Strategy (2011) and Local Plan Part 2 (2015). A ‘Consultation Draft’ was prepared under Regulation 18 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012. This was open for public consultation between 8th January and 19th February 2021 and is available to view here: Local plan | Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council. The Council will now consider responses made to the public consultation and prepare and publish a Regulation 19 (Pre-submission) version of this new Local Plan later in 2021. The new Local Plan is anticipated to be submitted for independent examination and adoption by the end of 2022.
