What is the Proposed Local Development Plan?
The Proposed Plan is a land use planning document which includes a clear long-term sustainable settlement strategy that reflects local needs, priorities and circumstances. The Plan will influence the location and form of new development by providing a basis for determining planning applications. The Proposed Plan represents the Council's settled view as to what the final content of the Plan should be. The Proposed Plan has been informed by the consultation on the Main Issues Report, an Environmental Assessment and background studies, including recently published Infrastructure Reports for key settlements. Further information on the timeline and how we have consulted on the Development Plan is available through our Development Plan Scheme.
