Local Plan 2022

Closed 14 Aug 2022

Opened 20 Jun 2022

Overview

South Tyneside Council has now produced a draft local plan which sets out the vision and objectives for growth of the Borough over the next 15 years.

The Plan will:

  • Allocate strategic and non-strategic development sites
  • Set clear policies that guide decisions on planning applications
  • Indicate how the plan will be delivered.

Whether your interests lie in local neighbourhoods, the city centre, transport, housing, employment, shopping or the environment, please share your views and help to shape the future of South Tyneside.

The consultation will run from Monday 20th June until Sunday 14th August 2022.

Why your views matter

The Plan’s period for representations is an opportunity for you to comment on the content of the draft Plan. 

We are asking you to review the Plan and make your representations to us with your support or objections and any changes you wish to see.

Key documents are available for reference on the following page. Please click the consultation link below to access further information and submit your response.

What happens next

Following consideration of the public feedback, amendments will be made where appropriate and the council may seek to remove more sites or add new ones depending on what suggestions come forward.

The next stage of consultation (known as Regulation 19) will provide another opportunity for local communities, businesses and other interested stakeholders to comment on content of the draft plan, before the Plan is submitted to the government’s Planning Inspectorate for independent examination.
