Why is the Local Plan being reviewed?

The council are required to undertake an assessment to determine if a review of the Local Plan is needed, within five years of adoption. Given recent changes in the new National Planning Policy Framework and issues identified in the inspector’s report on the Local Plan examination, a review is required at this stage. Further detail is provided in Chapter 2 of the above Options Document.

How will sites be assessed?

The Draft Site Assessment Methodology sets out the process the council will follow to assess and compare the suitability of potential development sites submitted to us. The methodology considers a wide range of social, environmental and economic factors such as flood risk, infrastructure, biodiversity, ownership and character to assess whether a site is sustainable and deliverable.
