A local plan is the statutory land use and development plan for a borough which sits alongside the London Plan. It provides the spatial planning framework for Hackney to deliver the sustainable community strategy.
Hackney's existing local plan (formerly local development framework - LDF) comprises the core strategy (adopted November 2010), the development management local plan (adopted July 2015), the site allocations local plan (proposed to be adopted July 2016) and adopted area action plans.
We're currently consulting on the new borough wide local plan. The consultation runs from 2 November to 14 December. This is your opportunity to help us develop a vision for Hackney in 2033. We'd like to hear your views to make sure we have captured all of the planning issues affecting local people.
For more information see local plan review 2033.

North London waste plan
The North London waste plan is being jointly prepared by seven north London boroughs: Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Islington and Waltham Forest.
The plan will identify a range of suitable sites for the management of all north London's waste up to 2031 and include policies and guidelines for determining planning applications for waste developments.
Supplementary planning documents (SPDs)
Supplementary planning documents will be produced to support existing policy found in development plan documents.
Authority monitoring report
We produce a monitoring report every year, which forms part of the local plan. This is required under Clause 113 of the Localism Act. The purpose of the report is to:
- provide information on key trends in the borough
- identify the effects of planning policies on social, environmental and economic outputs
- help determine how well we're meeting our objectives, targets and programmes
- inform and guide future plans and policies
- monitor how well we're meeting our local development scheme timetable
The lastest authority monitoring report covers the 2015 financial year (1 April 2014 - 31 March 2015) and was approved by corporate committee on 14 July 2016.
Local development scheme (LDS)
The local development scheme outlines planning policy documents' content and the programme for preparing or reviewing them. It helps ensure effective spatial planning, guiding sustainable development and helping regenerate the borough. It's reviewed regularly to keep it up to date. The current version, which covers the period 2016 to 2019, was approved by the Council's cabinet on 18 July 2016.
Previous versions of the LDS
The previous versions of the LDS covered the periods 2014 to 2017 and 2009 to 2013.
Statement of community involvement
The statement of community involvement (SCI) outlines the Council's standards for involving the community in the planning process and identifies ways it will achieve these standards. It sets out the Council's approach to public consultation in two areas of planning:
- the preparation, alteration and continuing review of its planning policy documents
- consultation on planning applications
On 29 January 2014, the Council approved the adoption of the revised statement of community involvement.
Specific and general consultation bodies
As stated in the statement of community involvement, the Council will consult with a number of specific and general consultation bodies in our consultation process.
