Local Plan Core Strategy

The Wigan Local Plan Core Strategy was adopted in September 2013. It sets out the spatial vision for the borough through to 2026 and a range of strategic objectives and policies. 

On adoption, it replaced a large number of policies in the Unitary Development Plan and changed the policies map by the addition of a site at Northleigh Park, between Hindley and Leigh.

Since March 2024, a number of the policies in the Local Plan Core Strategy have been replaced by policies in the Places for Everyone Plan and no longer form part of the borough’s Development Plan. These policies, and associated content, are shown with struck through text in the document.
