Emerging Local Plan Partial Review, Site Allocations and Development Management Policies (Regulation 18 - Stage 2) Consultation

Following the Regulation 18 (Stage 1) Consultation in 2018, we have considered the representations received and gathered additional information to inform the amount of housing, employment and retail development needed in the Borough to 2036.  We are seeking views on these issues and the options for determining where future development could take place to meet identified needs.  We are also seeking views on the sites that it is proposed to allocate for housing and employment in addition to those already allocated in the Local Plan Core Strategy, and the updated policies in the Development Management Policies Document.

We are undertaking a Regulation 18 (Stage 2) consultation which runs from 9:00 am on Friday 23 October until 5pm on Thursday 31 December 2020 and consulting on the following documents:

  • Part 1 - Local Plan Core Strategy Partial Review and Site Allocations Document (to view a web map of Figure 14 please visit https://arcg.is/1TG0f50)
  • Part 2 - Development Management Policies Document
  • Support Documents - an Errata to the draft Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) has been published on 20/11/2020. In addition, if you have a site that you wish the Council to consider prior to finalising the SHLAA, please submit details of your sites to us via the Call for Sites nomination form. This is available at the bottom of this page in the section “Respond using the on line questionnaire”.
