The Options consultation has now closed.

Thank you for using the online questionnaire and letting us know your views on the Options consultation. Work will now progress on reading the submitted responses.


What was the consultation about?

This consultation presented 5 options for meeting the borough’s housing need as part of the preparation of a new Local Plan to replace the Core Strategy and Development Management Plan.

Where could the information be found?

The consultation document and all the supporting documents are available in the consultation library below.

An Interactive Map to view the 5 Options was available throughout the consultation.

A hard copy version of the consultation document was available to view at the Civic Centre and the borough's local libraries.

Understanding the evidence

We have produced a useful summary paper to help assist with understanding how the technical documents have informed the options. Please see the evidence base to inform the Local Plan webpage which includes all the technical documents.

What happens next?

The Consultation responses will be reviewed and considered as we prepare the more detailed draft plan. We will issue a log of the consultation responses received along with the council’s consideration of the issues raised in the Autumn.
