Work is continuing on the Local Plan and other Planning Policy work. However, it should be noted that the Council is currently reviewing all work plans to determine how current limitations on working conditions (e.g. site visits, public consultation events, access to some information and specialist equipment, etc.) will impact on timescales for future planning work.
The Local Development Scheme (November 2019) sets out the timetable for the production of the Local Plan Review - this is currently under review due to the Corona Virus epidemic and planned substantial changes to the planning system.
The Council consulted upon our Local Plan Issues and Options in summer 2019. The summary of the consultation responses to the Local Plan - Issues and Options Consultation (2019) were reported to Cabinet at a meeting on the 17th October 2019.
The documents from the Local Plan Consultations and more information on the production of the Local Plan can be read on the Local Plan page.
