Solihull Local Plan Review


Solihull Council have now published the latest version of the Solihull Local Plan. This stage is known as the Regulation 19 version of the plan, which is the final chance to make representations before the plan is submitted to the Planning Inspectorate for independent examination.

The consultation will run from 30 October 2020 to 14 December 2020.

At this stage the plan is known as the Draft Submission Version. It takes account of the earlier consultations that took place between 2015 and 2019 and is also based on updated evidence. SMBC have also produced a number of Concept Masterplans which show their aspirations for the allocated sites.

Solihull’s Local Plan will guide the development of the borough for the next decade, and beyond. It is the basis for future planning decisions as it creates a ‘blueprint’ for when and where major developments can take place, and where it shouldn’t.
