Certain Structure Plan policies were previously 'saved' beyond the
Plan's end date of 2011, under the provisions of Schedule 8 to the
Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004. The direction to save
these policies was revoked on 20th May 2013 under Article 3 of the
Strategy for the West Midlands (Revocation) Order 2013, meaning
that no part of the Plan remains in force.

The Worcestershire Structure Plan is a long term planning
document covering a time period of 15 years which establishes a
strategic policy framework for development and land use planning
over a County area. The Structure Plan, together with District
Local Plans and the Minerals Local Plan comprise the development
plan for Worcestershire.
Certain policies contained in the County Structure Plan and
Minerals Local Plan no longer form part of the development plan for
Worcestershire following a decision made by The
Secretary of State under the provisions of the Planning and
Compulsory Purchase Act 2004.
Those policies not listed in the Direction (see below) expired
on 27th September 2007 and should not be taken into account in the
preparation of planning documents or in the determination of
planning applications. Further policies were superseded when
the Waste Core Strategy was adopted in November 2012. The remaining
policies are saved until further notice.
The list of "saved" Structure Plan policies, and the saved
Minerals Local Plan policies, and those superseded by the
Waste Core Strategy can be found via the following
