Development Management Policies

As new buildings are built, we need to make sure that Islington maintains the right mix of homes, work spaces, local shops and open space to meet the needs of the residents and businesses. We also need to manage the impact on transport, the environment and make sure new buildings respect the heritage of the area.

The Development Management Policies Development Plan Document (DPD) has detailed policies to ensure that these objectives can be achieved. This DPD will be a key document for assessing planning applications over the next 15 years.

The adopted document, Planning Inspector's report, Sustainability Appraisal and adoption notice can be downloaded below.
