Future Stages

All representations received concerning the Local Plan Part 2 will be submitted along with the Local Plan and supporting documents for independent examination by a Planning Inspector.  The Local Plan Part 2 will then be adopted if it is found to be acceptable by the Planning Inspector.

What is the Local Plan Part 2?

Local Plan Part 2: Land and Planning Policies Document (LAPP) will set out the non-strategic development allocations and a number of detailed policies for managing new development, following on from the strategic framework set out in the Core Strategy (Local Plan Part 1). When adopted, both documents will constitute the statutory development plan for the whole of the Borough and will replace all former Local Plans. Local Plan Part 2 will run to 2028 to align with the plan period of the Core Strategy.
