Knowsley Council has approved the adoption of its Local Plan Core Strategy.
The Local Plan Core Strategy is a vitally important document for the future of Knowsley as it will guide development in the borough up to 2028. It will set out where and how new development and regeneration happens in the borough to provide new homes and employment opportunities.
The Plan supports the wider aims of Knowsley Council and its partners to deliver 8,100 new homes across the borough in order to grow the borough’s population, to develop 164 hectares of employment land to create new jobs and to regenerate Knowsley’s Town Centres whilst enhancing the borough’s environmental assets.
Cllr Mike Murphy, Knowsley’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economic Development said: “I am delighted that the Local Plan will now be officially adopted. This is a major opportunity for the Council and our communities as the Plan will facilitate transformational change across Knowsley through new housing development, new employment opportunities and new and improved retail developments.”
The Plan is available on the council’s website and copies are available to view at Knowsley Council One Stop Shops and libraries.
