Planning Policy

The Council is preparing a Local Development Framework (LDF) to guide the development of the City in the period up to 2026. The timetable for the preparation of documents can be found in the Local Development Scheme.  The Exeter City Council Core Strategy Development Plan Document (DPD) has been adopted, but policies in the Exeter Local Plan have been saved and will not be fully replaced until the Development Delivery Development Plan Document (DPD) has been adopted.

Supplementary Planning Documents (SPD's) are prepared where necessary to amplify Exeter Local Plan and LDF policies.

Development Briefs and Masterplans have been completed and are currently in use by Development Management in determining planning applications for the areas outlined (in particular the Monkerton and Hill Barton Masterplan and Newcourt Masterplan).

Existing and emerging policies are supported by a detailed Evidence Base.

The Annual Monitoring Report is produced to review progress with the preparation and implementation of planning policies.
