We are working on a new draft Sheffield Local Plan which will guide the future of the city by setting out how and where development will take place up to 2038. We are calling it the ‘Sheffield Plan’ and, once it has been adopted, it will replace the Sheffield Core Strategy (2009) and ‘saved’ policies in the Sheffield Unitary Development Plan (1998). More information about the Core Strategy and Unitary Development Plan can be found on the Adopted Sheffield Local Plan page.
