North Lincolnshire Local Plan


North Lincolnshire Council is preparing a new single Local Plan for its area. It will establish a vision and objectives, allocate sites for housing, employment, retail, leisure, and other forms of development, and will include development management policies up to 2038. As well as setting out where new development will go, the Plan will also include policies which seek to protect and preserve open space, green infrastructure, the historic environment, and environmental assets. Once adopted, it will update and replace the existing planning policy framework for the area.


A six-week public consultation period is starting on Friday 15 October 2021 on this last stage of the new North Lincolnshire Local Plan, known as the Publication Draft Stage. The final day of public consultation is Friday 26 November 2021.




Previous Consultation on the Plan

An Issues & Options consultation exercise was undertaken between late January and mid-March 2018 in order to get the views of local communities and others about the issues that should be covered in the Plan and how these issues might be addressed. A further consultation of the Preferred Options Draft took place between February and March 2020. Together with available evidence and national planning policy, these two stages helped to inform this Publication Draft.


What is this stage of the Local Plan about?

This is the Publication draft version of the North Lincolnshire Local Plan also called the Regulation 19 Pre-Submission Draft Plan. Representations at this stage should only be made on the legal compliance and soundness of the Local Plan. That is, has the Plan been prepared in accordance with all legal and procedural requirements, and does the Plan meet the prescribed tests of soundness (see attached Guidance Note).

How do I access the Plan?

The easiest and most efficient way to provide comments is via the council’s website: 

A number of roadshows are to be held across North Lincolnshire to allow local people and others to come along to give us their views about the future growth and development of the area as well as the issues the Plan should cover. Dates and times can be found on the council website.

The Publication Draft document can be viewed electronically at Local Link offices and Libraries across North Lincolnshire using the public access computer network. A paper version is available for review at Scunthorpe Central Library.
