Call for Sites
This consultation provided an early opportunity for developers, landowners, town and parish councils, and other interested parties to put forward potential development sites to us for consideration in the plan.
All the sites submitted to us will be subject to further assessment. Any sites considered suitable for inclusion in the Local Plan will be subject to further consultation through the Local Plan process.
Issues and Options
We published an Issues and Options consultation document as a first stage in reviewing the Local Plan. This sought views on 20 key questions to be considered in the plan and the possible options for dealing with these issues.
