The Local Plan

The Local Plan is the development plan for the borough. It sets out how we will manage development and growth in Barnet. It has replaced the Unitary Development Plan except for the 13 policies for Brent Cross and Cricklewood. It is a collection of documents that work alongside national policy and the Mayor's London Plan to inform planning decisions.

The Local Plan includes Development Plan Documents (DPDs) and Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs).

The proposals map that formed part of the adopted UDP (2006) remains as the Proposals Map for the Local Plan subject to amendments through the Development Management Policies document with regard to town centres, safeguarded employment areas and areas of special archaeological significance as well as the area action plans for Colindale and Mill Hill East. Maps accompanying Local Plan documents are now known as the Policies Map.
