Central Lincolnshire

It is not only personal decisions that can shape the way in which we live. Our surroundings often play a major role when deciding where to set up home, which school to send our children, where to walk our dog or which route to take to work.

You have taken the first step in finding out more about the Central Lincolnshire Joint Planning Unit and the Central Lincolnshire Joint Strategic Planning Committee, a local partnership of City of Lincoln, North Kesteven, and West Lindsey councils together with Lincolnshire County Council who are working together to create an overall plan for Central Lincolnshire.


The delivery of new homes and jobs for Central Lincolnshire up to 2031 or 2036 will now be provided for through a new single Local Plan.  

Since work started on the Core Strategy for Central Lincolnshire in 2010, the government changed its preference for plan-making by local authorities, from a plan containing a number of separate documents to one single Local Plan.

The Central Lincolnshire Partnership Authorities of West Lindsey and North Kesteven District Councils, and City of Lincoln Council, supported by Lincolnshire County Council, had been preparing a Core Strategy and a separate Allocations Plan for the area. 

The Core Strategy was submitted to the Secretary of State for examination in October last year and the Government’s inspector appointed to examine the document identified concerns about this two-part plan approach. 

In response to this, the Central Lincolnshire Joint Strategic Planning Committee on January 6 withdrew the Core Strategy and re-affirmed its commitment to work together with its constituent authorities.  Central Lincolnshire’s partners in seeking a well planned package of sustainable development for the future, including all Parish Council’s and interested residents and businesses, are being informed directly about the change to the plan making process.    

Local Development Scheme

An updated Central Lincolnshire Local Development Scheme was approved by the Central Lincolnshire Joint Strategic Planning Committee on 3rd March 2014 and came into effect on the 12th March 2014, and provides the timetable for the Central Lincolnshire Local Plan over the period 2014 to 2016. This is available to view on the Local Development Scheme page of this website.

This website will be reviewed, reflecting the changes detailed above.
