Annex D: Saved Unitary Development Plan policies

D1. The City of Salford Unitary Development Plan 2004-2016 (the UDP) was adopted by Salford City Council on 21 June 2006. Under the transitional provisions associated with the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004, the policies in the UDP were automatically ‘saved’ for three years after their adoption. If the city council wished to retain any of the UDP policies beyond that three-year period then it was required to apply to the Secretary of State to do so. The city council did apply to the Secretary of State to save most of the UDP policies beyond June 2009, and this was approved.

D2. Regulation 8(5) of the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 explains that ‘where a Local Plan contains a policy that is intended to supersede another policy in the adopted development plan, it must state that fact and identify the superseded policy.’ Where saved UDP policies have not already been replaced by policies within the Greater Manchester Joint Waste Development Plan Document (2012) or the Greater Manchester Joint Minerals Development Plan Document (2013) it is intended that the saved UDP policies will be replaced by policies in this Development Management Policies and Designations document. These policies are listed below.

D3. The Local Plan Development Management Policies and Designations document does not supersede any of the policies in the Greater Manchester Joint Waste Development Plan Document or the Greater Manchester Joint Minerals Development Plan Document
