Local Plan Review 2020 - 2040

1. Draft Local Plan Review (Part 3) - Renewable Energy, Gypsy and Travellers and Residential Sites Options – Consultation Open

We are seeking comments on the Draft Local Plan 2020-2040 (Part 3). This consultation follows on from our previous consultations

Although we previously asked for comments on residential sites as part of the Draft Local Plan 2020-2040 (Part 2) consultation, national government requires at least 10% of our housing to be built on small sites, of 1 hectare or less. This is to provide a range of site sizes to appeal to different types of developers/builders. Therefore, we are consulting on some additional small sites for residential development, as well as sites for wind turbine and gypsy and traveller development.

The Draft Local Plan (Part 3) sets out options for where different types of development could be located. The information included within the plan shows all of the development options that are available for public comment, including:

  • potential sites for wind turbines,
  • a potential gypsy and traveller site and
  • potential small residential sites

Information also includes each of the different site options, including the proposed use, a map, and the sensitivities affecting each site.

No decisions have yet been taken as to where development might take place. The purpose of this consultation is to seek views on the options for development.
