Local Plan Review 2020 - 2040

Show all parts of this guide

1. Local Plan Review (Part 2) Site Options Consultation

The Draft Local Plan (Part 2) is the third step in our update to the existing Local Plan which was adopted in May 2014. Within the next few years this plan, alongside the Local Plan Part 1 (which was consulted on in March to July 2020), will replace the existing Local Plan in full.

The Draft Local Plan (Part 2) sets out options for where different types of development might be located over a 20 year period. The information included within the plan: 

  • Shows you all of the development options which are available for public comment
  • Provides information about each of the different options

It is important to note that no decisions have been taken at this stage as to where development might take place. The purpose of this consultation is to seek views from the public on the community's preferred options for development. In doing so, you are asked to comment on:

  • Particular preferences for sites within individual settlements
  • Whether any particular site(s) could help to resolve or improve existing issues within a settlement
  • Whether any particular site(s) could increase existing issues within a settlement
  • Any local knowledge which would improve our understanding of a site option
  • Any private or community interests which could be positively or negatively affected by development of a potential site option

Submission of new sites for development

A Call for Sites has been launched by us to provide individuals and organisations with the opportunity to suggest land they own that they think has the potential to be developed for gypsy and traveller uses. This is because the previous call for sites has failed to identify sufficient land for this use. We are also looking for small residential sites. This is to help us fulfil the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) requirement to accommodate 10% of our housing on sites of less than 1ha in size.

If you would like to submit a site for consideration, please go to our Submission of new sites for development webpage
