The Lambeth Local Plan sets out the vision, strategic objectives and policies for development of the built environment development in Lambeth. The Plan covers matters from telephone boxes to housing, work places, town centres, infrastructure (such as health facilities and schools), transport, environment and historic buildings. Together with the London Mayor’s it forms the statutory basis for deciding on planning applications.
The council is now starting a 2 year process to update the 2015 plan. The first stage – ending on 4th December 2017 – is consulting on the issues to be reviewed.
