Local Plan document structure and content pdf icon PDF 391 KB

To consider a report of the Strategic Head of Place Making and Planning.

 

With meetings of the Development Plan Working Party scheduled to consider different topic areas covered within the emerging draft Stockport Local Plan over the coming months, it is thought more than likely that questions may arise where the answer is ‘this will be covered elsewhere in the plan’.

 

The report provides, for information, an outline of the overall draft Local Plan document structure and of the content of each chapter.  This will hopefully help members to see each policy area being discussed in the context of the wider plan.

 

The Working Party is requested to note the report.

Strategic Policies pdf icon PDF 683 KB

To consider a report of the Strategic Head of Place Making and Planning.

 

The report details the Local Plan's Strategic Policies – see Appendix 1.  These provide a bridge from the Stockport Local Plan Objectives (revised following discussion at 23rd November Development Plan Working Party meeting, see Appendix 2) and through them the priorities and ambitions of the One Stockport Borough Plan, to the topic-based policies which follow on from them and which will contain detailed considerations to be used in the determination of planning applications.  The Strategic Policies might be described as providing the 'strategy hook' from which the detailed, topic-based policies hang.

The Working Party is requested to comment and provide feedback on the draft Local Plan Strategic Policies.

Providing for Our Communities pdf icon PDF 992 KB

To consider a report of the Strategic Head of Place Making and Planning.

 

The report details what is currently the first topic-based policy chapter of the draft plan, titled "Providing for Our Communities."

Our local communities have been the lifeblood of Stockport as we have come through the Covid-19 crisis together.  Active and vibrant communities and social infrastructure are a vital part of the future of Stockport in which everyone can lead healthy and happy lives.  The policies in this chapter will allow the Council to manage development so that it supports or contributes, in particular, to achieving Stockport Local Plan objectives 2, 3, 4 and 8 (see report titled ‘Strategic Policies’, on this agenda).

The Working Party is requested to comment and provide feedback on the draft ‘providing for our communities’ policies.
