Local plan 2040

We are reviewing our local plan with the aim to create a new local plan that will provide direction on the future growth of the area.

Until the time the new local plan is adopted we will continue to use the current local plan when making planning decisions.

The local plan 2040 was submitted to the Planning Inspectorate for examination in June 2022.

Prior to its submission the plan went through several stages of formal consultation with our communities, businesses and stakeholders.

Our local plan 2040 is currently with the examiner for consideration - to keep up to date on the latest news about the examination, visit our examination websection.
