Local Plan Review

The Issues and Options consultation held between 14 July and 4 September was the first step in deciding the content of the Borough’s new local plan. 

The consultation is now closed however documents are available below for reference.

Next steps

The Council is now collating and analysing the responses received. These will help us write a draft plan which you will have the opportunity to comment on in mid 2021. More details about the timetable are set out in the Local Development Scheme.
