Local plan 2033 (LP33)


The new borough wide Local Plan 2033, known as LP33, is 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.

Hackney Council adopted LP33 at Full Council on 22 July 2020 (Council meetings).

LP33 combines and replaces a number of our existing plans – namely, the core strategydevelopment management local plan and site allocations local plan as well as the area action plans for DalstonHackney Central and Manor House.

Along with the London plan, the local plan forms the development plan against which individual proposals are assessed.

Any person who is unhappy with the adoption of LP33 may make an application to the High Court under section 113 of the Planning & Compulsory Purchase Act 2004.

Any such application must be made promptly, before the end of the six week period beginning with the day after the relevant date (23 July 2020).

Before being adopted by the Council, LP33 was the subject of an independent examination in public, which took place during the summer of 2019. The examination was presided over by an inspector appointed by and representing the secretary of state. You can see the history of LP33 Examination.
