New local plan to 2042

We have started preparing a new local plan for Blackpool that will set out a vision and policy framework to 2042.

The new local plan will guide planning matters in Blackpool and upon adoption will replace the current Blackpool Local Plan Part 1: Core Strategy 2012-2027 (adopted January 2016) and Part 2 - Site Allocations and Development Management Policies document. 

Government guidance set out in the national planning policy framework requires local planning authorities to review their local plans five years post adoption to take into account changing circumstances affecting their area, or any relevant changes in national policy. Having undertaken a scoping review exercise during 2021/2022 using the planning advisory toolkit it has been determined that a full review of the core strategy is required.
