Legislation, Policy and Guidance - In Force

Note

This section indicates plans and policies which are still in force. Policies which have been superseded can be found in the Archives section. Kindly note that from time to time, minor modifications are undertaken on local plans. These are being listed prior to the Local plans so that professional representatives and their clients would be aware of the changes.  Users of the website should also refer to the MAPSERVER to check whether there are any applications for minor modifications. These are usually indicated in a green colour. In the longer term, it is the intention of MEPA to have amendments to local plans geo-referenced to facilitate perusal.
