Emerging Local Plan

Fenland District Council is preparing a new Local Plan. This is an important document as it will determine what the district will look like in the future and how it will become an even better place to live, work and visit.

Once adopted, the new Local Plan will replace the current Icon for pdf Fenland Local Plan (May 2014) [3.75MB]. Documents relevant to the preparation of the emerging Local Plan are available to view and download from the Document Library.

We consulted on the Issues & Options Consultation Document from 11 October to 21 November 2019. As part of this consultation we held a Call for Sites exercise, invited nominations of Local Green Spaces, and invited views on the Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report. Thank you to everyone who responded.
