What is a local plan?

The Local Plan (sometimes referred to as 'The Local Development Plan') is a set of policies and land allocations that will guide the future of our district up to 2031.

The South Cambridgeshire Local Plan was adopted in September 2018. All planning applications are now assessed against the policies in the Local Plan.

The preparation of the next Local Plan starts in January 2020. Cambridge City Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council are preparing a joint Local Plan for their combined districts (Greater Cambridge). This stage is the Greater Cambridge Local Plan - The First Conversation (Issues and Options 2020)
