This consultation aims to get your views on the Council’s preferred strategy for future growth, policies to help determine planning applications and sites to deliver new homes, employment land and community uses. 

In Spring last year we published a number of Options for the new Local Plan. Having considered all the comments we received, we have put together a first draft plan. Once we have considered all the comments, we will publish a final draft plan in Winter 2017/18. Adoption is scheduled for early Summer 2018.
