Housing and Economic Development DPD (HED DPD)
Following the adoption of the Core Strategy in December 2014 the Council is preparing a Housing and Economic Development Development Plan Document (HED DPD). This plan will set out more detailed policy coverage for matters relating to housing and economy to fully implement the policies of the Core Strategy. The HED DPD will be accompanied by a Proposals Map which will show on an Ordnance Survey base the extent of allocations and designations arising from the adopted Core Strategy and the HED DPD. When adopted the HED DPD and Proposals Map will form part of the statutory development plan for the borough.
The preparation of the HED DPD is in accordance with statutory and regulatory requirements. For the latest anticipated timescale, please refer to the up to date Local Development Scheme. The main stages of plan preparation are as follows:
- Issues and Options (Regulation 18)
A public consultation was held on this stage of the document from 26 August - 7 October 2016.
- Publication of Preferred Option (Regulation 19)
A public consultation was held on this stage of the document from 28 April - 9 June 2017.
- Submission to Secretary of State (Regulation 22)

HED DPD - Main Modifications – Additional Housing Sites
In preparing for the forthcoming Public Examination into its plan, the Council is proposing to put forward some additional housing sites as main modifications for the Inspector to consider. The Council has identified sites at Clitheroe, Simonstone and Langho to help meet the Government’s requirements to maintain a 5 year supply of housing land.
A six week consultation period starts on Friday, 27 July and closes at 5pm on Friday, 7 September 2018, during which comments are invited on the proposed modifications.
This consultation relates only to the modifications being proposed to the Housing and Economic Development DPD, you do not need to restate any previous objections as these have already been forwarded to the Inspector for consideration as part of the Examination process. All representations must relate only to the amendments being proposed. The response to the proposed amendments will be provided to the Inspector as part of the Examination process. Representations received after the closing deadline may not be considered.
