Lambeth Local Plan 2015
The Lambeth Local Plan 2015 (PDF, 5.3MB) is a concise, all-in-one plan setting out the vision, strategic objectives and policies for development in Lambeth over 15 years. The Plan covers housing, jobs, town centres, infrastructure (such as health facilities and schools), transport, environment, historic buildings and the quality of the built environment. Together with the Mayor’s London Plan and the South Bank and Waterloo neighbourhood plan (PDF, 4.6MB), it forms the statutory development plan for the borough.
The Local Plan replaces the previous plans for the borough, which were the Core Strategy 2011 and Saved UDP policies. These plans can be seen on our Local Plan archive page.
The Local Plan was examined by an independent planning inspector. The examination concluded on 11 August 2015 when the Inspector issued her final Inspector’s Report and the final Inspector's modifications. The Inspector found the Lambeth Local Plan to be sound and legally compliant, subject to incorporating the main modifications set out in her report. The council made all main modifications to the Local Plan as recommended by the Inspector, as well as all additional modifications, and the Plan was adopted on 23 September 2015.
The policies of the Local Plan were drawn up in light of an extensive evidence base of research and studies. These can be found on the planning policy evidence base page.
