The Draft Local Plan sets out the vision for the future development of Middlesbrough.
It includes the emerging planning policies, allocations, and designations which will be used to guide development in the town until 2041.
Once the Local Plan comes into force (is 'adopted'), it will replace the town's existing planning policies, and will be used to help decide planning applications.
We also have to look at sustainability as part of the Local Plan. This involves doing a sustainability appraisal of the Local Plan to make sure we consider the potential environmental, social, and economic effects of the Local Plan.
We're running a consultation to find out what people think of our Draft Local Plan.
The consultation will run from 9am on Thursday 1 February 2024 until 5pm on Friday 15 March 2024.
