We are launching our Draft Local Plan consultation on 16 July 2018 and this will run until 5pm on 10 September 2018. For further information, please see the Council’s website

We would love to hear your views!

The Local Plan is important planning policy that says what can be built and where and will guide housing, employment, retail and other infrastructure needs up to 2035.

Last year we sent a survey to every home in the District asking for your views on the ‘Issues’ facing the area over the next twenty years and our suggested ‘Options’ for dealing with them. We had a magnificent response – over 15,000 of you took part – and overwhelmingly you supported our ideas, which have been incorporated into this draft of the Local Plan.

This is now your opportunity to make your views known on policies and sites within the Plan and to contribute to what we hope is an ambitious and appropriate plan for the District.

How can I have my say?
