The Planning Policy team is responsible for preparing plans covering what can be built and where; creating policies protecting the built and natural environment and the delivery of good design; implementing the Local Development Scheme; ensuring economic competitiveness, and monitoring the efficiency of the plans and policy in effect. Worcester City has worked with Malvern Hills and Wychavon District Councils to prepare a joint Local Plan covering the three Local Authority areas.
The South Worcestershire Development Plan (SWDP) came into effect on 25 February 2016. A review of the SWDP is currently in progress, which will update the plan period to cover 2021 to 2041.
