Saved Planning Policies

Saved policies will still be used to determine the merits of planning applications. The current statutory planning policies for the town are as contained in the adopted Essex and Southend-on-Sea Replacement Structure Plan, Essex and Southend-on-Sea Waste Local Plan, the Essex Minerals Local Plan, and Southend-on-Sea Borough Local Plan together with its First and Second Alterations.

The Development Management Document (DMD), adopted July 2015, has replaced a number of Southend Borough Local Plan Saved Policies, as outlined in Appendix 9 of the DMD.
