Sheffield Draft Local Plan consultation

On 9th January, Sheffield City Council published their long-awaited Draft Local Plan, which is now open for consultation until 20th February 2023.

The plan will shape the policies and locations for developments and other land uses in the city (excluding the Peak District National Park) until 2039. What will this mean for Sheffield’s natural environment?

On Thursday 19th January we hosted a ‘Wild Night In’ online Zoom event to explain what the Local Plan is, the key draft natural environment policies and site allocations and how you can most effectively respond to the consultation.

We are currently working on our response to the consultation – once ready, we will share this on our Sheffield Local Plan page – but we did share our headline messages in our online event, which you can watch a recording of here:

The Draft Local Plan, supporting documents and consultation can be found here, along with details about a series of public drop-in events about the Local Plan being held across the city.
