Following Local Plan Part 1 - Joint Core Strategy which is the overarching document of the Local Development Framework, the Council has prepared a second planning policy document. This is the Development Management and Site Allocations now known as Local Plan Part 2 (LPP2). This incorporates both detailed development management policies and also allocates (non-strategic) sites to meet the objectively assessed development needs including retail, housing, employment, community, leisure and transport.
A lot of work has been done with Parish Councils, communities and other organisations to develop the draft Local Plan . Information specific to communities can be found in the 'Background work with parishes on LPP2' box below.
The other boxes below relate to documents linked to the stages of the emerging Local Plan Part 2 (LPP2).
We are currently at the Publication stage of the LPP2. A consultation on the Publication LPP2 took place between the 6 November and noon on 21 December 2015. The following link will take you to the web page where you can view a copy of the Publication LPP2: Publication LPP2 Page
