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 Local Planning Authorities (LPAs) will plan, monitor and manage the delivery of housing from 2014 to 2034 in accordance with the spatial strategy and the site allocations set out in this plan. Housing provision will be made for at least 26,700 dwellings (net) in the Plan Area during the plan period 2014 to 2034, comprising the policy area totals and the related market housing and affordable housing provision as follows:  

  1. Within the Plymouth Policy Area -  at least 19,000 new homes, of which 4,550 should be affordable.  
  2. Within the Thriving Towns and Villages Policy Area - at least 7,700 new homes of which 2,050 should be affordable.

The delivery and availability of housing land will be monitored annually. Any necessary adjustments will be made in order to deliver the overall local plan housing target and maintain a rolling 5 year supply of deliverable housing land, consistent with the policy area totals.
