Issue details

Sheffield (Local) Plan Spatial Options

To agree the overall spatial approach in the emerging Sheffield (Local) Plan.


The report will set out the overall spatial options for meeting future development needs in Sheffield in the period to 2039.  It will seek agreement on a preferred approach in advance of producing the Publication Draft Sheffield Plan (to be published for public consultation in October 2022).


The Government has increased the housing need figure for Sheffield by 35% and the implications of providing land for new homes and jobs to support this higher figure requires careful consideration. 


It is desirable, as far as possible, to build a political consensus around how Sheffield should grow and develop over the next 18 years.  Once a preferred overall spatial approach has been agreed, it will then be used to develop more detailed policies, proposals and site allocations in the Draft Sheffield Plan.
