Previous Draft Local Plan

A previous draft Local Plan covering the period 2011-2029 was submitted for formal examination in 2014. Following hearings held 10-13 November 2014, the Government’s Planning Inspector issued his Preliminary Conclusions. He concluded that the plan was not sound because it did not provide sufficient housing, with particular concerns about affordable housing provision. He recommended the Council produce a new Local Plan. As a result of these Preliminary Conclusions, the examination was concluded and work started on the new Local Plan.
