SPT13 - Strategic infrastructure measures to deliver the spatial strategy

The Plymouth and South West Devon Joint Local Plan is now at the public examination stage. Keep up to date with what's happening on our Plymouth and South West Devon Joint Local Plan: Examination page.

The LPAs will work in partnership with key funding partners and investors in order to ensure that the infrastructure needed to deliver the spatial strategy is delivered. Any land required to deliver these infrastructure measures will be safeguarded. Investment will be guided towards these priorities to ensure their timely delivery, and where schemes need to be delivered in advance of development, financial contributions will be sought retrospectively through the Section 106 process where appropriate. This includes strategic infrastructure measures to unlock the sustainable growth potential of Plymouth’s three Growth Areas and the Thriving Towns and Villages, as identified in other policies of this plan and listed in the schedule in Annex 1 of this plan.
