Local Plan Review

Local Plan Review Update

Following on from the Preferred Options consultation in late 2021, the Local Plans Team has read through all the responses made and they are undergoing final moderation to remove personal data before being made available online in the next few weeks.

The next stage of public consultation is aimed for later this year, but we are still finalising the supporting evidence base documents, and elected Members have yet to discuss and agree the plan for consultation. We will write to everyone who made comments as soon as consultation dates are available.

Preferred Options - Consultation Closed

The 6-week consultation period for the Preferred Options closed at 5pm on Monday 13 December 2021. The Local Plans Team will now read through all the responses made and comments will be taken on board as we move forward with the review. Once the comments have been read and redacted to remove personal information, they will be made publicly available. This may take some time due to the level of responses - we will update the website and social media when they are published. Many thanks to all those who participated in the consultation by sending in their views or attending our in-person appointments and online Q&A sessions.

Data Protection

The Strategic Planning Team manages and maintains a register of persons who have an interest in local planning documents (Local Plan Database); those who wish to register land for future development on our Self and Custom Build Register and/or Strategic Housing and Employment Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA); and regarding Empty Properties. In order to do this in an effective way we will need to collect and use personal information about you. For more information about how we process this data see Strategic Planning Team - Data Protection.
