Wigan Borough Local Plan: Planning for the Future to 2040

We are preparing a new Local Plan for Wigan Borough to 2040.

Consultation took place on the Options and Preferences for our Local Plan and associated Map Book from 24 October - 18 December 2023. All comments received are currently being reviewed by the Council and will inform an initial draft of the Local Plan which will be consulted on in summer 2024. 

A summary of the responses received at different stages of the Local Plan’s preparation are as follows:

  • Issues and Opportunities stage (October - December 2022)
  • Options and Preferences stage (October - December 2023) - coming soon

The Local Plan evidence base and the Integrated Assessment can be viewed below:
