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.  Any comments received during the period of representation (9am Friday 19 January - 5pm Friday 1 March 2024) will be reviewed and published online, subject to them meeting the standards set out within the Frequently Asked Questions and Guidance for Making Representations.  An update in relation to the publication of representations, will be provided on our Local Plan Regulation 19 webpage in due course once officers have processed all 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 in the second half of July 2024.

The Local Development Scheme 2023-2026 was agreed by Cabinet on 28 September 2023.  The Local Plan review timetable has been updated to reflect the timeline detailed within the Local Development Scheme.

We consulted on the Regulation 18 Draft Local Plan between 17 February and 30 March 2020.
