What we are doing now.

What are we doing now?

 

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

 
  • East of Halewood Sustainable Urban Extension SPD
  • Kirkby Town Centre Master Plan Supplementary Planning Document

 

It is anticipated that a formal consultation on these SPDs will take place in the Early 2018 and all will provide further detail to support certain policies within the adopted Knowsley Local Plan: Core Strategy (2016).


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.

 

Work will shortly begin on the Council's yearly update to the Authorities Monitoring Report (AMR).

An update to Knowsley Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) is due to begin in the Autumn of 2017 with publication anticipated for Early 2018.
