Planning Policy

The Publication Draft Local Plan public consultation runs from 16th June to the 11th August 2017. Please visit the Publication Draft Local Plan page to find out more, including how to respond.

The Council is responsible for producing a Local Plan which guides future growth and development in the Borough.

The Council has an adopted Local Plan and is currently working on a new Local Plan to guide future development up to 2033. This will involve allocating areas of land for future development and setting out policies that will be used when making decisions on planning applications. The Local Plan must meet national planning requirements and is informed by technical evidence as well as comments received during public consultations.

If you need information on national planning policy and guidance please visit our Government Policy and Guidance page.

If you would like to be kept informed about the preparation of our new Local Plan please email to have your email address added to our consultation list.
