Review of Local Plan
Reviewing our Local Plan
As a result of changes to national planning policy, work is currently underway to review our Local Plan policies relating to housing. The timetable for the review, consultation and the publication of the update is available to view within the attachment at the bottom of this page.
The Council has published a new document 'Making the Efficient Use of Land Optimising Housing Delivery 2018' in response to the publication of the revised National Planning Policy Framework. This is an interim measure to boost housing delivery and give greater certainty to the local plan process.
Please see our Local Plan issues and options consultation page for information about our ongoing consultation, and associated documents.
