Thank you to everyone who supported the Council’s consultation on the “Submission Draft” of our plan. More details are available here but that’s not all that’s been happening!

Outcome of Consultation on the Submission Draft Plan

Results from the consultation on the Submission Draft Plan are in! Many thanks to those who took the time to comment on the plan, particularly those who gave 100% support. However, there were some objections to the plan, particularly from developers and land owners who have their own ideas. The Independent Examiner, Rosemary Kidd, will ask for clarifications for any responses and objections, as necessary.

Community Actions

Development of the draft neighbourhood plan has been a time consuming task which started back in 2018. The graphic below shows key elements of our story so far – and we’re not finished yet!

The consultation runs from 15 March 2021 to 23 April 2021, details are available on the Council’s website.
