This consultation aims to get your views on the Council’s preferred strategy for future growth, policies to help determine planning applications and sites to deliver new homes, employment land and community uses.

In Autumn last year we published a number of Issues and Options. Having considered all the comments we received, we have put together a first draft plan. Once we have considered all the comments, we will publish a final draft plan in Winter 2018. Adoption is scheduled for late 2019.

Sustainability Appraisal and Habitats Regulations Assessment

Alongside the First Draft Local Plan, we are also inviting comments on the Interim Sustainability Appraisal and Habitats Regulations Screening Assessment.
