Islington's Local Plan review
Each Local Planning Authority is required to have an up to date Local Plan setting out the policies and proposals that will guide development in the area over the next 10 to 15 years.
Islington has an adopted Local Plan made up of several documents, including the:
- Core Strategy (2011)
- Development Management Policies
- Site Allocations
- Finsbury Local Plan (all 2013)
We are currently reviewing the adopted Local Plan. This will allow us to respond to changes that have happened at the national and London-wide levels since the Plan's existing policies were adopted, and consider the latest evidence on key issues.
Previous consultations on the Local Plan Review
We consulted on the Local Plan: Scope of the Review document from 28 November 2016 to 27 February 2017. We also undertook a 'Call for Sites' consultation to identify future development sites for a range of uses. This consultation was the first stage in the formal plan production process.
From 12 February to 26 March 2018, we consulted on a Site Allocations Direction of Travel document, which identified over 150 sites where new housing, workspaces, shops, open spaces, or leisure and community facilities could be provided over the next 15 years.
From 20 November 2018 to 14 January 2019, the council consulted on a Regulation 18 draft of the new Local Plan. Download the consultation drafts and supporting documents on the consultation page (under 'Useful documents').
The council will analyse responses received before moving ahead with preparation of a Regulation 19 draft Local Plan.
