What is Publication?

With Publication production of the Local Plan moves into the testing phase.  At this stage the Council believes that the plan is ready to be submitted to the Secretary of State for examination and can be adopted.  The Council therefore publishes the plan to gather representations on whether the plan is 'sound' and 'legally compliant'. 

Supporting consultation:

The Local Plan is supported by a series of evidence documents. In addition to representations on the Local Plan views were sought on some of these documents:


1054 representations were received on the Local Plan from 588 individuals, companies or organisations.

A total of 94 comments were received on the Infrastructure Delivery Plan, Local Green Space Assessment and Sustainability Appraisal.
