Local Development Framework (LDF)
The South Tyneside Local Development Framework (LDF) is our current Local Plan and guides the future development and use of land in the borough.
The Local Development Framework includes a portfolio of statutory Development Plan Documents (DPD).
Along with national policy and guidance, the LDF policies set the basis for assessing all planning applications and development proposals.
They are supported by non-statutory advisory guidance in our series of Supplementary Planning Documents.

Please note: The UK's nomination of the Wearmouth-Jarrow twin monastic site to become a World Heritage Site was formally withdrawn in January 2014 at the recommendation of ICOMOS and UNESCO, and subsequent agreement of central government and Sunderland and South Tyneside Councils.
