The Options Consultation for the Local Plan Part 2 was held between 4 April and 17 June 2016. It helped us test options and subsequently identify policies and land allocations that should be identified in the "preferred options", which is the next stage in the process.
The consultation documents set out the key issues impacting the district and suggested options that specifically consider the options for both the scale of development, settlement hierarchy and local green space, that once agreed will influence the scale and location of growth in particular parishes.
A number of responses to the Options Consultation were made using our online consultation system.
We have considered these responses along with other available evidence and information and have prepared a Preferred Options document for further consultation.
