New local plan
We consulted on a new local plan for the borough in January and February 2017.
There will be a further consultation in autumn 2017 before the final plan is submitted to the government for examination.
The new local plan will provide an update of the overall strategy for the borough and new site allocations looking ahead to 2033. When it is adopted it will replace the current local plan.
Residents, businesses, national organisations, landowners and developers were invited to make comments on what they think about the consultation draft local plan. The details of the consultation are set out below and results of the consultation will be published on this page as soon as they are available.
The reports and studies that have informed the preparation of the new local plan can be found in the evidence base.
