“A Fairer City” Publication Salford Local Plan: Development Management Policies and Designations 

Consultation on the Publication Salford Local Plan: Development Management Policies and Designations closed on Friday 20 March. The plan, supporting documents and comments received at this stage are due to be submitted to the Secretary of State later in 2020.

What is the Salford Local Plan: Development Management Policies and Designations?

The Salford Local Plan: Development Management Policies and Designations (SLP: DMP) covers the period up to 2037 and its primary purposes are to:

  • Provide the main policies that will be used to manage development and determine planning applications
  • Identify the designations that will protect the city’s most important environmental assets, town centres and infrastructure
  • Support the key delivery of key infrastructure, such as transport and utilities

A policies map has also been produced to accompany the plan which shows the areas of land that have been given a protective designation or otherwise relate to specific policies in the plan.

Consultation on the Publication Salford Local Plan: Development Management Policies and Designations closed on Friday 20 March. The plan, supporting documents and comments received at this stage are due to be submitted to the Secretary of State in May 2020. This is the version of the plan that the city council intends to submit to the Secretary of State for public examination by an independent planning inspector, and that it ultimately wishes to adopt.

The SLP: DMP is one of the documents that forms the development plan for Salford.

What happens next 

The plan, supporting documents, all of the comments received on the Publication Salford Local Plan: Development Management Policies and Designations, and a summary of the main issues raised in the comments will be submitted to the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government in May 2020. The plan will then be examined by a Planning Inspector and this process is likely to involve public hearings. We expect that the public hearings will take place in September/October 2020.
