New Local Plan

Issues and Options Consultation

The New Local Plan will set out a blueprint for how the District will grow and change over the next 15 years and beyond. This is the first stage in the process of preparing the Plan. The New Local Plan, when adopted, will replace the current Local Plan (Core Strategy and Delivery DPD).

A consultation on the New Local Plan Issues and Options document took place between June and September 2019. The Council is currently reviewing the responses received.

Previous Work on the New Local Plan

A 'Call for Sites' exercise was undertaken between March and May 2019 to understand what land interests there are in the District for potential housing, employment, retail or other development uses.

We have also started collecting technical evidence to inform the overall approach and policy direction of the new Plan.

We will continue to accept site submissions at this time and a Site Suggestion Form is available to download which provides further details.
