The Council is developing new planning policy that may have implications for your area.  The Council proposes to produce a new Local Plan.  You are invited to comment on the issues to be covered and if there are any additional matters it should embrace. 

In December 2014 the Ribble Valley Core Strategy was formally adopted and forms the primary basis for planning decision making within the borough.  This plan has been reviewed in line with Government guidance and the Council intends to update its planning policies through a new Local Plan.

The initial documents are now available for consultation.
