What is the Local Development Framework (LDF)?
The Local Development Framework, or LDF, is effectively a collection of various planning policy documents which consider a wide range of important planning issues such as housing, employment, retail, the environment, and transport. The LDF will play a crucial role in prioritising and shaping development in Shropshire over the next 20 years.
The LDF is made up of several planning documents, known as Local Development Documents (LDDs). When adopted, the policies and guidance contained in these LDDs will play an important role in the assessment of individual planning applications within Shropshire.
Two of the key documents which make up the Shropshire LDF are:
- Core Strategy DPD - Adopted 24 February 2011
- Site Allocations and Management of Development DPD
