Plymouth and South West Devon Joint Local Plan

The Plymouth and South West Devon Joint Local Plan is a joint plan between Plymouth City Council, South Hams District Council and West Devon Borough Council.

The three councils have joined up to create this plan which looks at every aspect of how we want our cities, towns and villages to look and feel over the next 20 years. Once adopted it will replace all previous development plans in each local authority and in Plymouth, the existing policies in the Plymouth Plan will also be combined with the Plymouth-specific policies in the new Joint Local Plan to create one document.

The Joint Local Plan was submitted to the Planning Inspectorate for examination on 31 July 2017. All documents submitted are below and the examination page will keep you up to date with what's happening.
