Local Plan Review

Public consultation

In early February 2021, we will be carrying out a consultation on the draft plans for future development across the borough. This is a review of the current local plan Bearing Fruits.  The review sets out what new development is needed across the borough between 2022 and 2038. This includes how the Government-set target of 1,038 extra homes per year will be met, as well as where improvements are needed to things like schools, health centres, open spaces and transport.

The review is also looking at issues like design standards and what infrastructure is needed to support new communities as well as policies to protect our heritage and natural assets. Consultation on the issues the local plan review should address and what development strategy option should be planned for, has already been carried out.

We encourage residents and stakeholders to register on our consultation portal: to receive instant notification of the launch of this event.  Letters will also be sent out to those who cannot receive electronic communication.

The document, guidance, and details of how to comment will be published here soon.
