The Birmingham Development Plan (BDP) will set out the statutory framework to guide decisions on development and regeneration in Birmingham up to 2031. It will set out how and where new homes, jobs, services and infrastructure will be delivered and the type of places and environments that will be created. The Plan will cover the whole administrative area of the city.

There have been a number of previous rounds of consultation on the Plan and a number of documents contributed to the preparation of the Plan.

These are available, along with all the submission documents, in a detailed evidence base.

The Plan was submitted to the Secretary of State for examination on July 1st 2014.

The examination hearings took place in October and November 2014 and the inspector published interim findings in January 2015.

In response to these findings the City Council has undertaken and submitted additional technical work in relation to housing numbers and the Sustainability Appraisal.

The inspector has now agreed with the Council a schedule of Main Modifications which, on the basis of the evidence available to date, he considers are necessary to make the Plan sound.

These Modifications were subject to public consultation between the 17th August 2015 and the 12th October 2015.
