The Plymouth and South West Devon Joint Local Plan was adopted by South Hams District Council on 21 March 2019, Plymouth City Council on 26 March 2019 and West Devon Borough Council on 26 March 2019.

The three councils have joined up to create this plan which looks at every aspect of how we want our cities, towns and villages to look and feel over the next 20 years. Now adopted, the Joint Local Plan replaces all previous development plans in each local authority and in Plymouth, the existing policies in the Plymouth Plan will also be combined with the Plymouth-specific policies in the new Joint Local Plan to create one document.

The adopted Joint Local Plan covers the administrative areas of Plymouth City, South Hams District and West Devon Borough and forms part of the Development Plan for these areas.
