Liverpool City Region Spatial Development Strategy Engagement The Liverpool City Region Combined Authority has launched a range of engagement activities seeking views on a draft version of the Spatial Development Strategy. This a planning document that will set the scale and distribution of strategic development across the City Region to 2040. It will sit alongside Local Plans produced by the local authorities who make decisions on planning applications. The draft SDS contains policies on a range of topics affecting our city region. These include: net zero greenspaces economic growth housing provision health and wellbeing infrastructure including transport social value placemaking Producing an SDS is a commitment of the City Region’s Devolution deal. It allows us to develop our own distinctive planning strategy in response to the issues and opportunities we face. The engagement will run from 24 November 2023 to 16 February 2024, and is being run by the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority. Engagement activities will include pop-up events in several towns across the city region and an online survey.

This engagement process should not be confused with the ongoing Examination of the Wirral Local Plan.
