Local Plan Issues and Options Consultation

The Local Plan decides how much development should happen over the next 15 years and where it will go. It also guides decisions on whether or not planning applications can be granted and allocates sites.

In 2017 an Issues and Options public consultation was held (between 25 September to 6 November 2017) to consider different approaches to delivering the borough’s housing and employment needs.

Following the conclusion of the Issues and Options public consultation, the council published residents’ comments, which were broadly supportive of a balanced approach to accommodating future growth through intensification and modest use of land currently located in the Green Belt.

An item detailing the outcomes of this stage was taken to the Licensing and Planning Policy Committee on 25 January 2018. This item can be viewed here. A summary of what people said in the Consultation can be found below.

How can you get involved?

Shaped by you

The views of local people are key to the development of the new Local Plan. It is essential that the borough’s future is formed by those who live and work here, and we will be undertaking further public consultation this spring to hear your views.

The new Local Plan encompasses a wide range of elements, from housing to employment, the environment and investment. Further consultation will be taking place in 2020 and we want to hear the views of local people on all these issues.
