Review of the Telford & Wrekin Local Plan

The Telford & Wrekin Local Plan (TWLP) is the Development Plan for the Borough and is central to delivering plan led growth and is the starting point for assessing planning applications. The TWLP 2011-2031 was adopted in January 2018.

The Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 places an obligation on Councils to review Local Plans within a five year period from the date of adoption. The TWLP was adopted in January 2018, therefore a review needs to be completed by January 2023. The purpose of a review is to take account of changing circumstances affecting the area, or any relevant changes in national policy.

The Borough needs to comply with the Regulations and ensure its Local Plan is up to date and in conformity with the revisions to the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF). A review also enables authorities to address local opportunities and/or challenges in areas such as natural environment, transport, health and wellbeing, provision of affordable and specialist accommodation and climate change.

As the review progresses the Council will make relevant consultation and evidence related material available via this web page.
