Local Plan overview
Core Strategy with Development Management Policies
When it is adopted, the Core Strategy with Development Management Policies will become the key strategic planning document for Royal Greenwich. It will be used to help shape development and determine all planning applications.
Key features of the proposed strategy are explained in the latest draft document. They include:
- a significant number of new homes by 2028
- the creation of two new mixed use urban quarters at Charlton Riverside and Greenwich Peninsula West.
Strategic and development management policies will be used to guide development applications in the borough. These cover a range of topics such as open spaces, infrastructure and environment and climate change.
Public consultation - Submission Version Core Strategy
Public consultation on the Submission Version Core Strategy with Development Management Policies takes place over a 12-week period ending on 14 May 2013.
You can download the Submission Version Core Strategy and related documents such as the Draft Core Strategy from the Core Strategy Consultation Portal. Hard copies of the full documents are available to view in all Royal Borough libraries.
Draft Core Strategy
The Draft Core Strategy with Development Management Policies was the result of the Issues and Options consultation and included summaries of what you told us and reasonable alternatives. It also included findings of the Sustainability Appraisal. The Draft Core Strategy consultation lasted twelve weeks from November 2010 to February 2011.
Issues and Options document
The Issues and Options document was the result of the first stage in the preparation of the Core Strategy. It was published for public consultation in February 2008 and set out what were considered the key planning issues facing Royal Greenwich and a range of options for addressing them.
The feedback that the Royal Borough received in response to the Issues and Options consultation on the Issues and Options document helped to shape the Draft Core Strategy with Development Management Policies.
The Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report was the initial document for the sustainability appraisal of the emerging Greenwich Local Plan.
The Initial Sustainability Appraisal assessed each option put forward in the Core Strategy Issues and Options document against the objectives established in the Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report. The assessment compared the advantages and disadvantages of the main environmental, social and economic implications of each option.
The Sustainability Appraisal was updated in February 2013, assessing the Submission Version Core Strategy with Development Management Policies.
