The Site Allocations Plan includes proposals for:

  • Reserve housing sites that will only come forward if needed
  • Self-build and custom build housing sites Built-up area boundaries for settlements
  • Safeguarding land for A46 junction improvements

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 original consultation period ran from Thursday 8 August to 5.00pm on Friday 20 September 2019. The consultation was extended until 15 October due to an error with an incorrect email address being used in a letter to residents. We recontacted those consulted on the previous consultation to allow opportunity for comments to be resubmitted. The consultation has now closed.

The comments can be viewed online using our Consultation Viewer. Select SAP Proposed Submission (Reg.19) Consultation from the drop-down list at the top of the page. You can then search by the topic of the comment or by typing the surname or organisation of a respondent. Please note that postal and email addresses, phone numbers, and signatures are redacted in accordance with data protection legislation.

We are currently analysing the responses to the consultation. The representations, and our responses to them, will then be submitted to the Secretary of State for examination by an independent planning inspector. If it is found by an independent planning inspector to be 'sound', the Plan can then be formally adopted by the Council.
