Local development orders can be made by local planning authorities under powers in section 61A of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 ("the 1990 Act"), and can be used to grant planning permission for particular types of development in particular areas or throughout the local planning authority’s area.
Section 5 of the Act amends section 61B of, and Schedule 4A to, the 1990 Act to remove the Secretary of State’s powers to intervene in local development orders before they are adopted by local planning authorities. This Order makes related amendments to local development order procedural requirements in the Town and Country Planning (Development Management Procedure) (England) Order 2010 and the Town and Country Planning (Environmental Impact Assessment) Regulations 2011.
