What is the Core Strategy?

The Core Strategy is a key document in the Local Plan, which provides the strategic planning framework for the county's future development needs up to 2031. A range of policies sets out how these needs can be met while at the same time achieving social and environmental objectives.

The Core Strategy policies replace most Unitary Development Plan policies, against which current planning applications are determined.
