Surveying in Sunderland


Surveying Across The North

The Core Strategy and Development Plan 2015-2033, commonly referred to as the Local Plan, serves as Sunderland’s comprehensive blueprint for future development. This extensive document outlines the strategic vision to steer the city’s growth, determining how land should be allocated for various purposes, including businesses, new jobs, recreation, and housing.

Central to the plan is the recognition of Sunderland’s evolving needs, with a particular emphasis on addressing the projected population increase. The council’s plan identifies the need for an additional 13,410 homes by 2033, translating to an annual construction target of 745 new homes. This ambitious housing objective is crucial to accommodate the anticipated population growth and ensure a well-balanced and sustainable urban environment.
