Part of the Doncaster Unitary Development Plan (UDP) continues to be used to decide planning applications.
In 2007, as required by Government, the UDP policies were assessed to see which should remain in force. The then saved UDP policies were listed in the Secretary of State's Direction (27 September 2007) and Schedule which are available below:
