    Following the Regulation 19 (2) consultation, which ended on 28 November 2021, the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham Draft Local Plan 2037 was submitted to the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities on 20 December 2021. The details of this can be found in the Notice of Submission letter on the Examination Library.

    The Secretary of State will appoint a Planning Inspector to examine the Plan against the test of soundness set out in the NPPF:

    • positively prepared (i.e. the Plan seeks to meet needs);
    • justified (i.e. the Plan is supported by evidence);
    • effective (i.e. the Plan is ‘deliverable’) and;
    • consistent with National and Regional Policy (i.e. broadly aligns with both the NPPF and the London Plan)


    A timetable will be set out for Examination once an Inspector has been appointed.
