Adopted Birmingham Development Plan

The Birmingham Development Plan (BDP) 2031 was adopted by Birmingham City Council on 10 January 2017. The BDP sets out a spatial vision and strategy for the sustainable growth of Birmingham for the period 2011 to 2031, and will be used to guide decisions on planning, development and regeneration.

Adoption of the BDP results in changes to the statutory development plan. This includes replacing the policies in the Birmingham Unitary Development Plan 2005, with the exception of policies contained in chapter 8 and paragraphs 3.14 to 3.14D of that plan, which will continue in force until the adoption of the council’s proposed development management development plan document.
