Dalston area action plan

The Dalston area action plan (AAP) is a comprehensive strategy for co-ordinated development and design that reflects local aspirations for the future of the area. It is a guide to balanced development and provides confidence and certainty to developers and other public sector bodies.

The purpose is to establish the basis for shaping the regeneration of the area and to ensure the continued role of Dalston as a major town centre whilst respecting its unique character. The AAP has a strong focus on implementation and forms a statutory component of the local development framework.

Current stage

The final version of the AAP incorporating the changes arising from the inspector’s final report were approved for adoption by cabinet and Council on 17 December 2012 and 30 January 2013 respectively.

The Council would like to thank everyone who engaged in the various rounds of public consultation and the examination in public.
