Previous Local Plan Consultations

Since 2014 the following consultations have taken place to help inform the new Local Plan.

Local Plan Publication - August 2019

In August 2019 we "Published" the Local Plan for technical comments on whether it meets the "soundness and legal tests" set out in Planning Legislation.  Comments were invited between 12 August and 6pm Monday 30 September 2019.

Local Plan Consultation - Draft Policies and Proposed Sites

We consulted on draft Policies and proposed sites – as well as supporting evidence base – for inclusion in the Local Plan from Thursday 13 September to Friday 26 October 2018. All comments received were analysed and have informed the Publication version of the Local Plan.

Homes  and Settlement Consultation – March 2016

Consultation on the proposed number of new homes we are planning for and how we think they should be distributed around the Borough.  Based on planning for 920 homes per year, it gave proposed numbers for individual settlements.

A Sustainability Appraisal was undertaken to re-assess the advantages and disadvantages of the potential growth options consulted on earlier in July 2015 but concentrating on the 3 options considered as the more realistic.  The appraisal also assessed the Homes and Settlements paper.  The Scoping Report was also updated.

Revised  Draft Vision, Aims and Objectives – March 2016

Consultation on revised vision, and supporting aims and objectives, taking account of comments from previous consultation in July 2015.

Site Selection Methodologies Consultation – November 2015

We consulted on two emerging site selection methodologies (in late 2015) to select housing, employment (including mixed use) and minerals sites. 

Local Plan Issues and Options & Vision, Aims and Objectives – July 2015

Early consultation on:

  • a vision for how the Borough will develop over the Local Plan period and supporting aims and objectives; and
  • 6 broad options (but 3 rejected) for where to locate growth across the Borough

A Sustainability Appraisal was undertaken to assess the advantages and disadvantages of the 6 potential growth options – itself informed by a Scoping Report.
