Peyto Law Instructed to Advise Liverpool City Region Combined Authority on the Spatial Development Strategy

Peyto Law has been instructed by the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority to provide legal advice and assistance during the preparation and publication of its Spatial Development Strategy (SDS).

The Combined Authority’s lead officer for spatial planning recently told the Planning Advisory Service heads of planning conference that the SDS for the city region would be prepared within two years, beginning with a scoping and visioning consultation this summer.

As part of the agreed arrangements, the SDS could make strategic allocations, but will not de-designate land such as Green Belt. 

A social impact evaluation will also be carried out as part of preparing the strategy.
