Central Lincolnshire covers the combined area of the City of Lincoln, North Kesteven and West Lindsey, totalling an area of 2116sq.km, with a population of 290,500 (Census 2011).
The Central Lincolnshire Joint Strategic Planning Committee (CLJSPC) was established in October 2009 and the Central Lincolnshire Local Plan Team (previously called the Joint Planning Unit) was established in May 2010.
The Central Lincolnshire Local Plan Team is responsible for producing the Central Lincolnshire Local Plan which will contain planning policies that relate to the delivery and management of development in Central Lincolnshire. The Central Lincolnshire Local Plan will progressively replace the Local Plans of the City of Lincoln, West Lindsey, and North Kesteven District Councils.
The planning policies in the Central Lincolnshire Local Plan will be used to help determine planning applications within the Central Lincolnshire area – the policies will set out what can be built and where.
The plan will also address strategic matters by looking at future needs to be addressed, including housing needs, what change is likely to happen and where, and what policies are needed to achieve this.
