Site Allocations Plan Preferred Options

Site Allocations Plan: Regulation 18 - Preferred Options

At its meeting on 19 October 2020, the District Council approved a Site Allocations Plan Preferred Options for the purposes of public consultation.

This replaces the Proposed Submission Site Allocations Plan that was published in Autumn 2019 which is not being progressed.

The consultation period ran from Thursday 29 October until 5.00pm on Friday 18 December 2020. The Consultation is now closed.

The Council published an additional note in November 2020 setting out an amendment to the SA Main Report in relation to Table 6.4 in order to correct typographical errors and an inconsistency in presentation

The comments submitted on the Site Allocations Plan Preferred Options (October 2020) are available to view on our Consultation Viewer. Select "SAP Preferred Options Consultation 2020" from the drop down list at the top of the page. You can then search the comments either by the name/organisation of the respondent or see all the responses on a particular topic by selecting the appropriate topic from the drop-down list under the "search" heading.

To aid use of the Consultation Viewer we have compiled a list of respondents and the topics on which they have commented. The responses are split into two tables, with the first listing the individual respondents (ordered A-Z by surname), and the second listing responses on behalf of organisations (ordered A-Z by the name of the organisation).

The District Council will assess all the comments and consider what changes should be made to the Plan in producing the next version. This will be the Proposed Submission Plan that will be subject to formal consultation before being submitted to the Secretary of State for examination by an independent planning inspector. Please see our Local Development Scheme for the latest expected timetables for the progress of this Plan.
