Latest News and Forthcoming Consultations

New Local Plan Preparation Update

Public consultation on the 'Preferred Options' document, showing  proposed approaches for a new Local Plan, closed February 2020 (see Local Plan Review information). Thank you to everyone who responded or attended one of our public exhibitions.  We are reviewing the comments made and will use them to help prepare a final draft Plan.  There will then be a final chance to make written representations on proposals.

PANDEMIC UPDATE: The timescale for the next, final draft, version of the Local Plan (Publication: Regulation 19) is to be updated. Preparatory work still continues despite current circumstances, with the hope of moving towards the next plan version as soon as possible (potentially winter 2020/21 or afterwards). However, the overall timetable for taking the Local Plan to Publication (and Examination and Adoption) will need to be updated accounting for all external and internal issues.

Once in place, the revised programme will be made publicly available. Please visit this webpage again in future for further details.
