Birmingham Development Plan

Shortcut to this page: www.birmingham.gov.uk/plan2031

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.

The next step will be for these Modifications and the revised Sustainability Appraisal to be subject a further round of public consultation. Further information on the arrangements for this will be published shortly. The Inspector will take all the consultation responses into account when producing his final report and recommendations.

All of the examination documents are available in the evidence base section.
