New  Local Plan - Planning for Growth and Change

The Local Plan is one of the Council’s most important documents as it sets out how the area should be developed in the future.

Local Plans are the key documents through which local planning authorities can set out a vision and framework for the future development of the area, engaging with their communities in doing so. Local Plans address needs and opportunities in relation to housing, the local economy, community facilities and infrastructure. They should safeguard the natural environment, enable adaptation to climate change and help secure high quality accessible design. The Local Plan provides a degree of certainty for communities, businesses and investors on future development proposals, and a framework for guiding decisions on individual planning applications.

    Meeting Economic Needs

    The Government requires all local planning authorities to provide a long term Local Plan to meet our needs for the future.  

    The Local Plan must set out a positive strategy in seeking to accommodate around 23,500 new homes and 11,000 new jobs over the next 20 years. In order to facilitate this the Local Plan should seek to protect existing employment land and allocate new land for new offices, industrial uses or other employment activities

    The Covid Pandemic has had a significant impact on the global and local economy, including consumer and travel to work patterns. The New Local Plan can play a key role in helping to act as a catalyst to recover from this impact.
