Local Plan

May 2024 - Local Plan Review update:

The Regulation 19 Local Plan period of representation closed at 5pm Friday 1 March 2024.  Any representations received after this time cannot be accepted.  All comments received during the period of representation (9am Friday 19 January - 5pm Friday 1 March 2024) are being reviewed and will be published online on or shortly before Local Plan submission, subject to them meeting the standards set out within the Frequently Asked Questions and Guidance for Making Representations.

The next stage will be the formal submission of the Local Plan to the Secretary of State. This had been due to take place in June 2024.  However, due to the Prime Minister announcing a General Election to be held on 4 July 2024, submission has been delayed slightly and will now take place as early as possible in July 2024.

For an explanation of each stage of the Local Plan, or how we consult, please visit our What is a Local Plan? page and our Statement of Community Involvement documents.

The Local Plan review timetable reflects the timeline detailed within the Local Development Scheme.
