Councils must have Local Plans in place or risk the threat of inappropriate development.

In campaigning for the protection and enhancement of countryside the Campaign to Protect Rural England urges local authorities to have adopted local plans in place to steer development to sustainable places.

Local Plans were introduced by the Town & County Planning Act 2004 to allocate land for development in a transparent and democratic way, and the National Planning Policy Framework, March 2012 reiterated the plan led system.

In order to continually assess the situation, CPRE Lancashire has complied a document which charts the progress of each council in Lancashire, Greater Manchester and Merseyside.

The most current report, November 2017, is provided below.
