The City Council’s Planning Services is inviting feedback on a Draft City Centre Strategic Development Framework 2050 (CCSDF 2050) which seeks to establish the spatial ambition and development direction to guide the future evolution of the City Centre towards 2050. The document can be found here Draft CCSDF 2050
The CCSDF 2050 is one of six such documents being prepared for six priority areas identified in the City Development Plan (CDP) that require a co-ordinated spatial plan to guide future development and regeneration. The CCSDF 2050 identifies strategic priorities for the centre, that respond to local issues and emerging opportunities. Under the CDP themes to make the centre more ‘Vibrant, Liveable, Connected, Green and Resilient’ it proposes a number of interventions to: make the centre a more people-focussed and attractive place to live, work, visit and invest; grow the population, and improve the centre’s environmental performance and climate resilience.
Following the consultation and approvals process, it is envisaged that the CCSDF 2050 will become Supplementary Planning Guidance to the CDP. It will sit alongside and complement the City Centre Strategy in driving development ambitions for the city centre and delivering on their visions for it to become a more successful, sustainable and liveable place. Alongside the City Centre Strategy, the CCSDF 2050 will provide the spatial context to support the forthcoming City Centre Living Strategy and further District Regeneration Frameworks.
The consultation period runs from Wednesday 6th November until Friday 17th January 2020, when the document will be available on the Council’s consultation portal
