Birmingham Development Plan Review
We are working on a new draft Birmingham Local Plan which will guide how the city will develop in the future and provide policies to guide decisions on development proposals and planning applications. up to 2042.
We are calling it the ‘Birmingham Plan’.
Once it has been adopted, it will replace the following plans:
- Birmingham Development Plan (2017)
- Aston, Newtown and Lozells Area Action Plan (2012)
- Longbridge Area Action Plan (2009)
More information about these documents can be found on the adopted Local Plans page
