Core Strategy

Our Core Strategy sets out the overall planning vision and framework for the city from 2006 to 2021 and beyond. It was formally adopted by Full Council on 23 April 2007.

The Core Strategy is about how land is used and considers how places work, how people get around, the services available to them and the communities they're part of. It includes an outline for delivering strategic development needs for Plymouth's future, including housing, employment, leisure and retail. All other development plan documents must conform to the Core Strategy.
