Planning policy

The Planning Policy team is responsible for matters relating to planning policy in Middlesbrough. The team prepares the statutory development plan for Middlesbrough which sets out land allocations and policies to guide development proposals against which planning applications are decided.

Local Plan

The Local Plan is a series of Development Plan Documents setting policies and proposals for the use of land in Middlesbrough. It includes the Housing Local Plan (adopted 2014), a Core Strategy (adopted 2008), and Regeneration DPD (adopted 2009). View the interactive Local Plan.

The Middlesbrough development plan guidance note outlines the set of documents and policies which together comprise the Statutory Development Plan for Middlesbrough.
