Local Plan Review - Position Statement

The Council does not currently have a formal Local Development Scheme timetable. At its meeting on 28th March 2024 Cabinet considered the results of a Local Plan Review scoping exercise which identified the areas of the current Local Plan that are likely to require updating. However, Cabinet resolved not to formally progress with a full Review of the Local Plan pending the introduction of new Local Plan-making processes that are expected to come into force later this year. In the meantime, the Council will progress with the gathering of evidence to underpin a new plan. Cabinet also agreed the publication of a Position Statement outlining its decision and reasoning in the interests of openness and transparency around the matter of plan making.
