Our existing local plan is called the Local Development Framework, and it is made up of a number of documents.
The documents set out proposals and policies about where we expect development and change until 2021. They also set out specific policies that we use to make decisions on planning applications across the Chelmsford area.
We are currently working on our new Local Plan which will help us plan growth until 2036. We will replace all of the existing plans with the new Local Plan in 2018.
