revising local plan

Revising the Lambeth Local Plan

The Council is consulting with Lambeth residents on the revised Lambeth Local Plan up to 17 December 2018.

Once finalised, the Revised Lambeth Local Plan will set out the vision and planning policies needed to direct and guide development in the borough over the next 15 years to meet our future needs. This is your opportunity to let us know what you think about the proposed new and amended policies. Visit the local plan consultation page and complete the questionnaire.

The Local Plan is vital to delivering the council’s Borough Plan priorities including inclusive growth, reducing inequality and building strong and sustainable neighbourhoods and more housing.
