Issues and Options Additional Sites Submitted Consultation 2015

Site Allocations Development Plan Document: Issues and Options Additional Sites Submitted Consultation

This consultation is now closed

The Council is now seeking your views on a number of additional sites put forward for development purposes in response to the ‘Issues and Options’ consultation 2014.

To view the consultation document, which includes maps of the sites submitted, please click on the following link:

The Issues and Options Additional Sites Submitted consultation will run from 09 January 2015 until 27 February 2015.

The Council welcomes your comments on the sites within this document only.   

You do not need to re-send any previous comments you have made in relation to other sites and issues; all comments submitted will be considered in the next stage of the process.

The sites are illustrated as submitted, with no assessment of their suitability or fit with the Local Plan strategy.   They are not being promoted by the Council and are for discussion only at this stage; no analysis or ranking has been carried out. Sites will be assessed in accordance with the Site Assessment Methodology document which was published as part of the earlier consultation.

A Frequently Asked Questions leaflet has also been produced to provide some key facts about the site allocations process and help answer questions you may have.

You may wish to read the Site Assessment Methodology 2014 and Sustainability Appraisal 2014 (see above) in conjunction with the Additional Sites Submitted consultation document, although these do not form part of the consultation.
