A seven-week consultation on our emerging Development Management Policies Local Plan has ended.

We will now consider whether to adopt the plan at the Extraordinary Council meeting on the 22 March.

The suggested 'main modifications' to the plan will meet all legal and national policy requirements. This was confirmed by the Planning Inspectorate.

Lead Councillor for Planning Policy, Cllr Joss Bigmore said: 

"This is great news for the progression of our Development Management Policies Local Plan. It means that we can progress with the strong requirements on new development that we had hoped for."

Our proposed policies cover topics such as:

  • heritage
  • biodiversity
  • climate change
  • design
  • infrastructure
  • transport
