East Northamptonshire has embarked upon a review of its planning policies and proposals, which is informing the preparation of new Local Development Documents (LDDs).
These documents will replace Local Plans in the new development plan system introduced by the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act in 2004. The Local Development Frameworks (LDFs) will comprise a series of Local Development Documents (LDDs) that will deliver the spatial planning strategy for East Northamptonshire to 2021.
Work is currently underway on the preparation of a joint LDF with Kettering, Corby, Wellingborough and East Northamptonshire Council.
A Local Development Scheme outlining the schedule and timetable for the production of LDDs was reported to elected members on 22 November 2004.
One of the first LDDs to be prepared will be the Statement of Community Involvement.
