The existing Local Plan, setting out spatial strategy for future development in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, was adopted in July 2015. The current Consolidated Plan (2015) combines alterations since the Core Strategy adoption in December 2010 and remaining Unitary Development Plan (UDP) extant policies saved in September 2007.
Since 2015, The Council has been undertaking a Partial Review of the existing Local Plan. On 5th May 2017 the Council submitted the Local Plan Partial Review to the Secretary of State for Communities for examination. The examination hearings were held between 27th February and 16th March 2018 and the adoption is expected in late summer/autumn 2018.
However, according to the Council, minimal weight should be currently given to the emerging Local Plan Partial Review policies when determining planning applications.
