COVID-19 Update - The Regulation 19 Local Plan consultation is expected to be made available for public comment in January 2021. Unfortunately this has been delayed from our original expected date of May 2020. This document will contain proposed planning policies and sites allocated for development to be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate for examination by an independent planning inspector. The Local Development Scheme is currently being updated to reflect the amended timetable and will be made available on the website once approved.

Apologies for any inconvenience. If you wish to be kept informed of progress, please register to receive updates from the Planning Policy team.
