The new Local Development Plan, will inform the planning framework for the Borough through to 2030 and following an extensive public engagement exercise, representations and views have now been considered by the Council and worked into a Draft Plan Strategy. That Strategy is now ready for examination and scrutiny under the Independent Examination Process by the Planning Appeals Commission.

“Planning is key to so many aspects of daily life. Housing, education, infrastructure, businesses, rural communities and our natural and historic environment will all be influenced by our Local Development Plan. The Council has taken on board views from a wide range of stakeholders, and sincerely thank all those who responded to our consultation exercise.”
