Birmingham Development Plan (Draft)
Shortcut to this page: www.birmingham.gov.uk/plan2031
The Birmingham Development Plan will set out the statutory planning framework to guide decisions on development and regeneration in Birmingham until 2031. It will set out how and where the homes, jobs, services and infrastructure will be delivered and the type of places and environments we want to create in Birmingham.
By 2031, Birmingham’s population is projected to grow by 150,000. This level of growth, based on recent trends, is greater than previously considered and presents a challenge for planning the future homes and jobs the City needs.
If Birmingham is to achieve its ambitions and prosper, it will be vital that a positive and proactive approach is taken to plan for these homes and jobs in the most sustainable and deliverable way possible.
Since the last consultation, we have been assessing all the options and comments received and have now prepared a further version of the Plan, know as the 'Pre-Submission Draft Document'.
This was approved by Full Council on 3rd December 2013. The report and associated papers are below.
There will now be a further period of consultation which will begin on 6th January 2014 and will close at 12 noon on 3rd March 2014. Further information on how to comment will be posted here shortly.
At the end of the consultation, we expect to submit the draft plan to the Secretary of State who will appoint an independent inspector to hold a public examination into the 'soundness' of the Plan.
