Local Plan Review

Local Plan Review

The Local Plan provides a set of planning policies that outline how planning applications will be determined. The council has committed to reviewing its existing Local Plan.

The Local Plan is the main planning document a local planning authority uses to set out their aspirations for development in their area. It is influenced by public engagement and a robust evidence base, to ensure they are both aspirational and deliverable.

The council will keep stakeholders updated on the latest updates regarding the review. This will include:

  • supporting evidence
  • technical documents
  • consultation opportunities
  • next steps

Call for views consultation

The call for views consultation (Regulation 18) is underway on the Local Plan - this is first stage of consultation for the plan.  

The consultation ends Monday 17 June 2024. 

Have your say

Further details on the consultation and how to respond are set out on the consultation webpage.
