The Local Plan 2016-2031

We are currently working on a new Local Plan which will be used to decide the outcome of planning applications in the future.

There are a number of stages involved in this process, with local residents being consulted along the way. We will consider all responses alongside relevant evidence, guidance and national policy before progressing to the next stage of the plan.

Key stages

The Council intends to publish the Preferred Options Local Plan for public consultation during the Summer 2017. We will publish further details of the timetable and future public consultations shortly.
