Overview

The Regulation 19 (Publication) Local Plan is the document that will be submitted to the Secretary of State for Examination in Public. It is the version that the council seeks to adopt, subject to that examination, as the future framework for decision making on planning until the new Local Plan is adopted in 2024. 

From the 27th August the Local Plan Partial Update and supporting documents can be viewed online here

A series of webinars will be held in September on key topics in relation to the Local Plan Partial Update and related SPDs.  You can check the dates and view the webinars or watch these back on our YouTube channel.

Why your views matter

We are asking for your views on the ‘soundness’ and legal compliance (including with the duty to cooperate) of the Regulation 19 (Publication) Local Plan. Your representations will be submitted to the independent planning inspector for examination along with the Draft Local Plan.

What happens next

Responses received on the Local Plan Partial Update will be submitted alongside the Draft Plan for examination by a planning inspector, appointed by the Secretary of State.
