DEV19 - Provisions for local employment and skills

The Plymouth and South West Devon Joint Local Plan has now been adopted! To find out more please visit the Plymouth and South West Devon Joint Local Plan: Adoption page.

Visit the interactive Plymouth Plan to see other policies that affect decision making across Plymouth City including the Council and its partners.

Major development proposals will be required to enter into site related employment and skills plans in order to support local employment and skills in the construction industry.

Developments that result in the loss of existing employment buildings or sites, or the non-implementation of previously consented employment use, will be expected to contribute to an appropriate local employment growth scheme or alternative employment uses.
