Boston Borough Local Plan

We currently use two plans to guide our decisions on planning applications - the adopted Boston Borough Local Plan (April 1999), and the Boston Borough Interim Plan (Non-Statutory Development Control Policy) 2006. You can view both documents from this page.

Adopted Plan 1999

The adopted Boston Borough Local Plan was the subject of public consultation from March 1993 through to July 1997. It was adopted in April 1999, has statutory weight, and can be seen below.

In accordance with the provisions of the Planning & Compulsory Purchase Act 2004, we have secured approval from the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government for some of the policies in the adopted local plan to be saved beyond the cut-off date of 27th September 2007. The approved list can be seen below. All other policies in the adopted local plan 1999 are not saved and therefore no longer have any effect.

Interim Plan (Non-Statutory Development Control Policy) February 2006

We had made very good progress with producing a replacement local plan, but had to withdraw from the statutory adoption process in February 2006. Nonetheless, we adopted a revised version of the replacement local plan for development control purposes - this document is known as the Interim Plan (Non-Statutory Development Control Policy). However, little or no weight can be given to the policies of the Interim Plan that were the subject of significant objections to the first draft or re-deposit draft Local Plan stages. The link to the right allows you to view the Interim Plan.

Annual Monitoring Report

The Annual Monitoring Report (AMR) assesses whether policies are achieving their objectives. Our most recent AMR can be seen below. This document includes core national indicators which must be monitored, local indicators which the planning department has developed, and contextual indicators which look at the characteristics of the area.
