Local plan 2033 (LP33)

The new borough-wide local plan 2033, known as LP33, will be the key strategic planning document used to direct and guide development in the borough up to 2033. Our aim is to make sure that the right amount of development is built in the right place at the right time so that the future needs of the borough are met.

Once adopted LP33 will combine and replace our existing plans – the core strategydevelopment management local plan and site allocations local plan as well as the area action plans for DalstonHackney Central and Manor House.

Proposed submission

Following extensive consultation, we’ve produced a final draft plan known as the proposed submission local plan 2033.

We consulted on the proposed submission plans from 19 November 2018 to 5 pm on 7 January 2019.

Following this consultation, we’ll submit the local plan to the Secretary of State for independent examination.
