Past consultations on the Local Plan Part 2

We are currently receiving a high number of planning applications which is resulting in delays to our usual response times. We are determining applications and responding to enquiries in the order they are received. We will respond as soon as possible.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

The Local Plan Part 2 proposes non-strategic housing allocations and detailed development management policies. The plan was submitted to the Secretary of State on January 24, 2017.

We received the report of Inspector Mike Hayden BSc(Hons) DipTP MRTPI on the examination of the Local Plan Part 2.

The report, together with the recommended main modifications, can be downloaded below:

The report follows the examination in public of the Local Plan Part 2 in April 2017.

Once the Local Plan Part 2 has been adopted, it will replace the current 1998 local plan in full. The Part 1 (adopted in June 2016), together with Part 2, will then be the primary documents that we will need to take into account when making decisions on planning applications across the plan area.

We undertook several consultations when developing the Local Plan Part 2, details of which can be viewed in this section.
