Pendle Local Plan Part 2 consultation

As part of the creation of a Local Plan for planning in Pendle, Pendle Borough Council have launched a consultation on their latest proposals. Among other objectives, this helps deliver the right type of development, in the right place and at the right time.


  • allocates land for specific types of development (e.g. housing or employment land)
  • identifies areas of land where development will be resisted (e.g. Green Belt, open countryside) or required to meet higher design standards (e.g. conservation areas).
  • provides applicants and developers with information about the design features we expect to see in new development
  • gives planning officers the information they need to help them to decide whether to approve, or refuse, applications for planning permission

All of the documents relating to the Pendle Local Plan Part 2 are available online. A short presentation to introduce the plan and consultation is also available to download below:
