31 March 2020: The Regulation 18 Draft Local Plan Consultation is now closed. 

The consultation on the Regulation 18 Draft Local Plan was held for a six week period between 17 February 2020 and 5pm on 30 March 2020.  The consultation sought views on all aspects of the Draft Local Plan, including the potential housing allocations.

The consultation has now closed.

We have received thousands of comments from individuals and organisations and we are grateful for the time and effort that has been spent in making views about the Draft Local Plan known to us.

The Regulation 18 Draft Local Plan can be viewed online here.

Further opportunities to have your say

Once comments have been considered and the Draft Plan has been further refined, we will consult on the final Submission Draft of the Local Plan (Regulation 19) in Autumn/Winter 2020, aiming for a Government inspector to examine it in 2021.

For further information about the stages of plan preparation and the timescales this will take place, visit our Local Plan Review timetable page.
