Unitary Development Plan

Unitary Development Plan

In United Kingdom Planning Law a Unitary Development Plan (UDP) is an old-style development plan prepared by a Metropolitan district and some Unitary Local Authorities, which contains policies equivalent to those in both a structure plan and local plan. These plans will continue to operate for a time after the commencement of the new development plan system, by virtue of specific transitional provisions.

The Unitary Development Plan is used at all stages of production and is reliant on criteria-based policies. Often sites are proposed for development, which are contentious, this may generate a significant opposition for the proposal.The existing system of UDP's makes it very difficult to provide a clearer framwork.
