Regulation 19 - statutory consultation

On 15 July 2019 the District Council endorsed the Site Allocations Plan for statutory consultation in accordance with the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations.

The consultation period commenced on Thursday 8 August and ends at 5.00pm on Friday 20 September 2019. Representations must be received by that time.
