Reviewing the Local Plan
It's important to make sure we have an up-to-date local plan so that planning decisions can be made with local people having a say on setting local policies.
We are currently working on a new Local Plan which will set out land allocations and planning policies for the period 2016 to 2036.
The current stage of the local plan review is the ‘New Directions for Growth’. Find out about our ‘call for sites’ and drop-in events: new directions for growth consultation
This consultation runs for eight weeks, from Monday 7 January to Sunday 3 March 2019.
- Draft Local Plan 'preferred options' (Sept 2019 to Oct 2019)
The Preferred Options Document is a key stage of the Local Plan preparation. It sets out the council’s preferred spatial strategy and preferred policy approach for the emerging Local Plan
- Pre-submission (May 2020 to July 2020)
The pre-submission stage of the Local Plan Review is the publication of the proposed document and supporting evidence.
- Estimated examination in public (April 2021)
This stage is when the final Local Plan is submitted to the Planning Inspector for examination. Following a successful examination, the Local Plan will be adopted
We aim to have a new local plan adopted in 2021.
