Place Plans and planning policy

Shropshire’s Place Plans are a key part of the Shropshire Local Development Framework (LDF).

The LDF looks at the potential for development, such as housing and employment land, and the place plans help us to understand the infrastructure that will be needed to support that development.

There's a lot more information about proposed development within our adopted Core Strategy and Site Allocation and Management of Development (SAMDev) Plan.

Once we have an understanding of local infrastructure needs through the place plans, we can then bring all of that information together into a single countywide document. We call this the Strategic Infrastructure Implementation Plan (SIIP). The SIIP is currently under development and will be published when it is completed, which should be by the end of 2020.

You can find out more information in our planning policy section.
