The Local Plan
Our ambition is for South Tyneside to be an outstanding place to live, invest and bring up families.
To help deliver this we are preparing a new Local Plan for South Tyneside, which will set the planning policy basis for assessing all planning applications and development proposals in the Borough.
It is the implementation plan for the land-use objectives of our South Tyneside Vision and supports our Shaping Our Future Strategy.
Together with national planning policy and guidance, the Local Plan:
- sets out the spatial strategy and policies for the sustainable use of land and buildings in the Borough
- lays the foundations for regeneration and economic growth, and
- forms the basis for assessing all planning applications and other development proposals.
Our current Local Plan is our existing South Tyneside Local Development Framework.
