We are preparing a new Local Plan to shape how Doncaster develops: how we want it to look and feel; and the policies and proposals needed to guide development to the right places whilst protecting and improving the environment and people’s quality of life.

During September – October 2018 we consulted on a key planning document which will shape Doncasters future. The consultation included draft policies and proposed sites to be included in the Local Plan – as well as supporting evidence base. This stage of the process provided an opportunity for everybody to give their views before the Council drafts the plan (known as the Publication version) next year.
Since 2014 the following consultations have taken place to help inform the new Local Plan.
National Policy sets out the requirements of a Minerals Planning Authority with regard to hydrocarbons.
Sustainability Appraisal (SA) (including Strategic Environmental Assessment) assesses the significant environmental, social and economic effects of the Local Plan, the "reasonable" alternatives to the Plan's strategy, policies and proposals; and the reasons for discounting alternatives. Mitigation is proposed to avoid, minimise and compensate for negative effects and to maximise positive effects.
An overall Vision for how Doncaster will grow and develop over the next 15 years has been prepared for the Local Plan.
Doncaster Council is preparing a new Local Plan that will have a big influence on the amount and location of new development across the borough in the period up to 2032.
The local Plan is supported by a Plan for delivering infrastructure and services across the Borough over the Local Plan period – what is needed, how much it will cost and how it can be funded and delivered.
