Birmingham Development Plan (Draft)

Birmingham Development Plan

Shortcut to this page:

The Birmingham Development Plan (BDP) will set out the statutory framework to guide decisions on development and regeneration in Birmingham up to 2031. It will set out how and where new homes, jobs, services and infrastructure will be delivered and the type of places and environments that will be created. The Plan will cover the whole administrative area of the city.

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, jobs and infrastructure the city needs.

There have been a number of previous rounds of consultation on the Plan and a detailed evidence base has been assembled.

Based on this, the Pre-submission version of the Plan has now been prepared. The document and the Policies Plan that accompanies it are available below.

Consultation on this version of the plan ended on 3rd March 2014 and we are now considering the comments received.

The next step will be to submit the Plan to the Secretary of State, probably in the spring. An independent planning inspector will then be appointed to hold an public examination. This is likely to take place in the late summer / early autumn.

You can view the comments we have received so far here.

All documentation that has contributed to the plan so far is contained here.
