Future work

 

The Council is intent on updating the Local Development Scheme (LDS), in order to provide greater clarity to all on the planning policy documents to be produced, as well as the evidence base, and the timescales for completing them. Please click here to see our current LDS.

 

We are currently undertaking work on a further round of SPDs, each of which are listed below:

 
  • East of Halewood Sustainable Urban Extension SPD
  • Knowsley Lane, Huyton Sustainable Urban Extension SPD

 

It is anticipated that a formal consultation on these SPDs will take place in the Spring of 2017 and all will provide further detail to support certain policies within the adopted Knowsley Local Plan: Core Strategy (2016).

The Council's Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) call for sites exercise has now closed. Work will now be done to assess these sites and the outcomes will be published in the final SHLAA report late 2016 / early 2017.

Update to Local Plan Consultation Database
 
In December we completed a full update our Local Plan Consultation Database. We contacted everyone on the database and asked them to confirm their details with us otherwise their details would be deleted and they would receive no further correspondence. This has now been done and we have started to compile a new database.
Should you wish to register to be added to the new database you can do so by contacting us using the details below.
