The Core Strategy and Development Plan sets out our long-term plan for development across the city to 2033. It will ensure that the right type of development is focused in the right places to meet the needs for local people and businesses.

You may have submitted comments to us last year on our draft Plan. We have listened to what you had to say and prepared the final version of the Plan, known as the Publication Draft.

The Icon for pdf Core Strategy and Development Plan 2015-2033 Publication Draft [5.35MB] includes development policies and site allocations, land use designations and development management policies, together with a Icon for pdf Key Diagram (2018) [350.42KB] and Policies Proposals Map 2018 (pdf) . An interactive version of the Policies Proposals Map is also available.

Sunderland City Council consulted on the Publication Draft from 15 June to 27 July 2018. This was the final stage of consultation before Sunderland City Council submits the Plan to the Secretary of State for the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government for examination.
