Proposed Development Management Local Plan

The proposed Development Management Local Plan will contain the development policies that elaborate the Core Strategy. It will form the development plan which we will use to determine planning applications, together with the London Plan, the Core Strategy and other supplementary planning documents.

This evidence base was used to prepare Hackney's Local Development Framework. Some of the evidence base will be updated as work completes.

Current stage - examination

An independent planning inspector, Simon Berkeley BA MA MRTPI, held hearings on Wednesday 24 September 2014 and Thursday 25 September 2014 on this local plan to determine whether it is sound.

In response to matters raised during the hearings the Council has provided some further information to the Inspector which can be found in the evidence base section of the webpage.   

The Council will be consulting on proposed modifications (see link below) to the DMLP tabled at the EIP Hearing early in the New Year. This webpage will be updated once a consultation period has been confirmed.

Please note: the Inspector's final list of Matters and Issues are available under 'Examination papers' below as IED-04 and IED-4 (the content of the Matters and Issues to be discussed has not changed, only the timetable).
