Draft Local Plan: Your questions answered

How will the Local Plan ensure jobs for local people, including new residents, and reduce commuting outside the area?

The Local Plan recognises the importance of retaining and safeguarding existing employment and commercial sites in the District. We need this to ensure that people can live and work locally.

Our policies protect existing employment sites and identify new land for employment growth and development.

We also make sure that our rural economy is protected by supporting the diversification of rural employment spaces and promoting tourism throughout the District.
