Endorsed Whole Estate Plans

Endorsed Whole Estate Plans

An endorsed Whole Estate Plan (WEP) will be a material consideration in determining planning applications and will provide a solid understood contextual background to any development proposals.

The inclusion of a development proposal within a WEP however does not guarantee that planning permission will be granted and any proposal will still need to be comply with relevant development plan policies. A WEP can also be used to help guide and support funding bids, future neighbourhood plan production, agri-environment and forestry schemes and with other Natural Capital projects.
