Scope of the Local Plan

Local plans can cover a wide variety of subjects of relevance to the local area. Some matters are relevant nationwide (e.g. providing enough housing); some are relevant only to selected council areas (e.g. student housing). 

The 'Scoping Consultation' is looking at what range of topics the new Local Plan should cover. We have set out what we think are the relevant subjects - we are asking you whether any more should be added, or any changed or removed. 

We have already sought the views of Statutory Consultees in autumn 2016; now it's the turn of everyone else.
