Planning Policy and the Local Plan
The Fenland Local Plan (May 2014), the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Minerals and Waste Plan (July 2021) and 'made' Neighbourhood Plans, comprise Fenland's Development Plan. Collectively, they set out policies that the Council uses to make decisions on planning applications.
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.
The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) sets out how the council will involve and consult with the public and wider stakeholders when planning for the future of the Fenland area
