About the Local Plan

The Local Plan (previously known as the Local Development Framework) is the new development plan being produced for Kirklees. This involves working out how many new homes and jobs are needed in the future for the district and allocating land to meet these needs.

The Local Plan will also set out the areas of Kirklees that need protection, including valuable open spaces, areas with high environmental quality and historic value. It will set out the infrastructure needed to make sure that any new developments are sustainable. The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) explains what sustainable development means in relation to planning.

The Local Plan will contain a map of the district showing where land has been identified for different uses such as housing, employment and open space. Planning policies will also be set out to make sure that development which comes forward will be sustainable. When the Local Plan is agreed and in place, planning applications will be judged against what it says.
