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). 

We consulted on the 'scope' of the Local Plan Review, with statutory consultees in autumn 2016.

We then also undertook public consultation on the Scope of the Local Plan between March 16 and April 28 2017, alongside the Issues and Options consultation.  The comments we received, and a summary of them, can be found below.
