One of the main duties of the District Council is to plan for the use of land. This includes producing a Local Plan which sets the guidelines for deciding planning applications. Land for development is in short supply and under increasing pressure for many types of use. The aim of the Local Plan is to guide development so that it meets the District's needs for new homes, jobs, shops and leisure facilities but does not spoil our towns, villages, countryside and coast. Tendring District has a District Local Plan adopted by the Council on 11 December 2007 which covers the period up to 2011.
