Draft Local Plan – 5 February to 17 March 2024

We consulted on our new Local Plan from 5 February to 17 March 2024. We are now analysing the responses to the consultation and these will be published in due course.

The consultation documents and background information are on our New Local Plan page.

Development Strategy Options and Policy Options - January to March 2022

This consultation ran between 17 January and 14 March 2022. The Development Strategy Options and Policy Options consultation described a number of key issues that the Local Plan Review must address, including options for how housing and employment development might be distributed across the district, as well as more specific policy topics such as how we might help to address climate change issues. 

Development Strategy and Policy Options Consultation Responses 

Altogether there were 414 responses to the consultation (there was one duplicate response that was recorded under number 319 which has been removed).

Due to the volume of response we have published them in a number of PDF documents and one spreadsheet. The responses that came in via CitizenSpace are on the spreadsheet.

How to view the responses

There is an index of representations that details the representation number of each responder. The index can be used to search for a response and then using the relevant respondent number you can access the full response in the relevant PDF/spreadsheet.

Once you’ve opened the relevant PDF you can use the 'contents' or 'menu' icon (in the top left corner) and the 'document outline' icon to navigate to the response you wish to view.
