In line with Government advice to forge ahead with programmes to support the economy and the environment, we launched public consultation into the new Local Plan, which ran for an extended 16 week period from 23 March 2020 until 13 July 2020.

All comments submitted during the consultation will now be reviewed and considered.  They will be made available on our website along with feedback from the Local Plan Team when the next stage of the plan is published for consultation.
