Adopted Local Plan

See the Local Plan adopted in 2017.

The Local Plan (adopted in July 2017) sets out plans to develop Canterbury district until 2031. We use it to help make planning decisions for the area.

The Local Plan includes:

  • housing, employment, infrastructure, and open space development
  • major developments like Mountfield Park
  • policies to protect and improve the environment
  • proposals map showing the allocated areas for development

There are a number of other documents which relate to the adoption of the Local Plan as well as an evidence base to support it.

You might also want to find out about how we're providing housing in the district.

Authority monitoring reports

We have to publish a report every year that looks at how effective the Local Plan is.
