This consultation took place between 15 July and 30 August 2013 and is now closed. Thanks to everyone who took the time to respond.
This final plan has been influenced by the feedback received during the previous consultation stages, local research, national policy and the research, policies and projects from the Mayor of London.
The Sites and Policies Plan (reference SP4.1, stage 4, pre-submission) is a very large document so it has been split into sections to make it easier to download.
The plans were updated to illustrate the changes between the final plans and those published for Stage 3 Draft final plan consultation (January 2013) using red text and strikethroughs.
You can also view the same maps as illustrated for the whole borough: Please be aware that the maps below are exactly the same as those contained in the "Stage 4 pre-submission publication" documents above. The maps below illustrate the whole borough, whereas the maps above are divided into different areas.
