The Local Plan is a collection of Development Plan Documents (DPDs) Core Strategy and Development Management Policies documents and Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) to deliver positive social, economic, and environmental outcomes and provide the overarching local policy framework for delivering sustainable development in Barnet. It was adopted in September 2012 substantially replacing the Unitary Development Plan 2006. The most recent addition to the Local Plan is the North London Waste Plan (NLWP) which was adopted in March 2022. The main legislation for the process of preparing Local Plans is the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 as amended.

This dataset contains geographic information for policies directed at specific areas or sites. Individual tables exist for different policies and features may be represented as points, lines, or polygons. The Local Plan dataset was created to support the planning documents as the Policies Map. It contains minimal attribution and is primarily intended to show where a policy is applied.

Reflecting policies and proposals in the Core Strategy and Development Management Policies documents together with the NLWP the Policies Map represents the latest version of the Local Plan Barnet’s Local Plan is under review, and it is expected that a new Local Plan and Policies Map will be adopted in 2024.

The Local Plan 2012 Policies Map dataset has been published through the Public Sector Geospatial Agreement Presumption to Publish Process in October 2023.
