A core strategy document is the key compulsory local development document specified in United Kingdom planning law. Every other local development document is built on the principles it sets out, regarding the development and use of land in a local planning authority's area. The principles should be in accordance with the community strategy.

Some legal requirements of a core strategy document[edit]

Additional to the requirements of all local development documents, core strategy documents:-

  • Should be location specific rather than site specific and so may be illustrated by a key diagram or on Ordnance Survey-based proposal maps.
  • May need to be expressed as criteria-based policies.
