The Local Plan Conversation engagement exercise has now closed

Thank you to everyone who took part. The comments and suggestions you have given us will help the Council decide whether we need to change the Local Plan.

We are currently looking at what you told us in detail to write a report that summarises your feedback.

The findings will be discussed by the Council’s Cabinet and further information will be provided on this page when available.


What could the Local Plan do to provide housing that meets the needs of local communities?

Housing is one of the most important issues in planning. Our population is changing and growing, and more people will be living longer and living alone in the future. The Local Plan defines how many new homes we should be planning for, including what types and where they should be built.

Affordability is an issue for many people, especially young people and those on lower incomes, and the Covid pandemic has led to increasing working from home and other changing lifestyle demands. Ultimately, we want new homes that meet the needs of all parts of the community, that are well designed, affordable, and in the right places.

We want to know what you think the Local Plan could do to meet the key challenges of providing housing that meets the needs of local communities in the future.
