Havering Local Plan
Consultation on the Proposed Submission Havering Local Plan has now closed. The Local Plan and other proposed submission documents can still be viewed via the link below.
The Local Plan sets out the Council’s ambitious vision and strategy for future growth and sustainable development over the next 15 years up to 2031. There is a need for new infrastructure, homes and jobs and Havering needs a spatial plan that will enable the borough to rise to these challenges and address each of these needs.
