Towards a New Local Plan 2036
Enfield’s new Local Plan will be the key planning policy document for the borough. Once adopted, it will contain policies that, together with the London Plan, the National Planning Policy Framework and any related policy and guidance documents, will be used in determining planning applications and will shape how the borough will accommodate development and regenerated over the next 15 years.
The Issues and Options Local Plan sets out options for accommodating development over the next 15 years, through “good growth” principles as endorsed by the Mayor of London. Good growth is about ensuring that the positive benefits of growth, regeneration and investment reach all residents of Enfield.
This is the first of two formal stages to be consulted on as part of the new Local Plan. The document is available to view online at enfield.gov.uk/newlocalplan
