Salford local plan

Salford City Council is preparing a local plan which will be the main land use planning document for the city. The local plan will:

  • set out how Salford should develop over the next two decades up to the year 2035
  • identify the amount of new development that will come forward across the city, such as housing, offices, industry and retail and the main areas in which this will be focused
  • support the delivery of key infrastructure, such as transport and utilities
  • protect the city's important environmental assets
  • allocate land for particular uses or protective designations
  • set out the main policies that will be used to determine planning applications

Progress made in producing a local plan

Consultation on the Draft Local Plan took place between November 2016 and January 2017. The Draft Local Plan identifies the approach the city council intends to take having regard to comments received during the initial stages of consultation. The Draft Local Plan includes a series of proposed policies and site allocations and is accompanied by a draft policies map which shows the location of the sites proposed to be allocated for development or given a protective designation.

You can view all of the Draft Local Plan consultation documents here.

Initial stages of consultation on the local plan took place during 2013 and 2014. The consultation documents and responses received can be viewed here.

Next steps in producing a local plan

All of the comments on the Draft Local Plan are now being carefully considered in developing an updated version of the local plan. This is due to be published later in 2017, and there will be an opportunity to make further comments on this version of the plan before it is submitted to the Secretary of State for examination.
