Submission for independent Examination in Public 2017

Richmond’s Local Plan was submitted to the Secretary of State for independent Examination in Public by a Planning Inspector in 2017. This page contains the background to the Local Plan which was then adopted in July 2018.

Customer notice

The Local Plan was adopted in July 2018. We are now starting to prepare a new Local Plan for Richmond borough.


On Friday 19 May 2017, the London Borough of Richmond submitted the Local Plan (Publication version), along with other publication and submission documents, evidence and supporting documents to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government for independent Examination.

The Local Plan has gone through various stages of consultation. The most recent consultation from 4 January to 15 February 2017 was on the Local Plan (Publication version), which sought comments as to the “soundness” and legal compliance of the Plan.

Our submission to the Secretary of State includes all comments received during the Publication consultation, as well as copies of all the responses received from the earlier rounds of consultation.
