The consultation on the Local Plan is open between 11 January (10am) and 22 February 2018 (5pm).

The Statement of Representations Procedure (PDF 233.9KB) provides more information on how to have your say and the availability of the consultation documents.

You can download the full copy of the Local Plan (PDF 16.2MB) and the proposed submission policy map (PDF 6.6MB) (see Local Plan appendices for more detailed maps).

For ease of use, we have also split the full copy of the Local Plan down into sections for you to download:

Even if you had your say in the summer, it’s important you have your say now – only the comments (representations) submitted during this consultation will go forward to the independent Planning Inspector to review before the Local Plan Examination.
