Subject: Consultation on Development Management Policies
We have just launched for public consultation draft Development Management Policies. These are the policies which will be used to make decisions on planning applications across the borough. I would like your help – both in hearing your views and bringing the consultation to the attention of residents and community groups in your ward.
The development of these policies has been overseen by the cross-party Planning Policy Advisory Group and I’m grateful to councillors Bloch, Brabazon, Demirci, Hare and McNamara for their ongoing work on this issue.
Focus of the consultation
The overall development plan for the borough is provided in the recently adopted Local Plan (formerly Core Strategy). The Development Management Policies set out more detailed planning policy requirements for new development proposals in Haringey. At this stage it is just a draft for public consultation and views.
The consultation document contains 23 policy approaches/principles which are organised around three steps to determine planning applications. These are
(1) Getting the right development in the right place;
(2) Delivering the best design; and
(3) Enhancing our borough’s infrastructure.
Each policy under the three steps includes a list of consultation questions. We would like to hear your views and your residents’ views on these. Consultation closes on Friday 10th May 2013.
How to engage with the consultation
To have your say on the draft Development Management Policies simply go to www.haringey.gov.uk/development-management-dpd where you can comment via an online questionnaire.
2. Meetings with community groups
As part of this consultation, officers from the Planning Policy Team and councillors from the Planning Policy Advisory Group would like to attend meetings of community organisations, conservation area advisory committees and other interested groups to hear directly from residents. Groups can email the Planning Policy team on firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange.

Call for sites – Sites Allocations Document
In addition to this, we are also carrying out a Call for Sites consultation which will inform a future Site Allocations Document. We are looking for potential development sites or groups of sites where there might be the opportunity for redevelopment or changes of use. Potential uses might include housing, employment, community facilities and open space.
To suggest a site for inclusion in the Site Allocations Document go to www.haringey.gov.uk/siteallocations
I look forward to working with you all during this consultation
