'Saved' policies are the planning policies contained in the Local Plans produced by the former county, district and borough councils.
'Saved' policies remain as part of the Development Plan until they are replaced by the Shropshire Council Local Development Framework (LDF).
The first document of the Shropshire Council LDF, the Core Strategy, was adopted on 24 February.
Please follow the link on this page to view the adopted Core Strategy.
What happens to 'saved' policies following adoption of the Core Strategy?
The policies that have been replaced by the Core Strategy no longer form part of the Development Plan within their relevant former Local Planning Authority boundary and will not be used to assess planning applications.
However, a small number of policies will remain in place until adoption of the second major LDF document, the Site Allocations and Development Management DPD (SAMDev), which is expected to take place in 2014.
These 'saved' policies will continue to form part of the Development Plan within their relevant former Local Planning Authority boundary, and will therefore continue to help inform decisions on planning applications.
