Local Plan Maps

A number of the Local Plan’s policies refer to specific designations or land allocations. They include:

  • Allocated development sites for housing, employment & sport
  • Housing development boundaries
  • Important open space
  • High street frontages
  • Protected railway routes
  • Conservation areas
  • Ecological networks
  • Open upland
  • Mineral & railhead safeguarding areas

Each of these designations relates to a policy in the adopted Local Plan publication text. The relevant policy reference appears alongside each layer in the maps below.

The maps are in PDF format. You will need to expand the ‘Local Plan policies’ or ‘Mapping’ folders by clicking on the ‘+’ icon in order to view the full list of layers for each map. It is possible to turn different mapping layers on or off, or by clicking on the ‘eye’ symbol in the menu on the left hand side of each map. You can identify the different layers either by turning them on or off, or by using the maps key.

NOTE: If you experience problems viewing maps/designation layers through your web browser, please download the map as a PDF and view outside of the browser.
