Wakefield District Local Plan 2036 


Wakefield Council is currently preparing the new Local Plan for Wakefield district to cover the period to 2036. It will provide a comprehensive, updated planning framework of policies, including policies for sites, to guide investment and growth in Wakefield district, as well as to safeguard and improve the environment. 


Amendments have been made to the Local Plan following comments received at the Initial Draft Plan consultation in January/February 2019. This public consultation was proposed in May 2020, delayed due to the Covid-19 emergency. The Key Changes leaflet can be used as a quick guide and the changes are clearly shown in the Volumes. See link below.


Consultation on the Publication Draft Plan takes place for six weeks from Thursday 29 October 2020 until 5pm Wednesday 9 December 2020
