The first stage of plan-making (Regulation 18 Notification) required us to notify interested parties of the proposed subjects to be included in the Local Plan, and to invite comments.


A public consultation took place between 17 August and 9 October 2015 in order to seek comments on the Regulation 18 Notification Statement. Consultees were asked if there were any matters which had not been identified in the statement which should be included in the emerging Local Plan.

A report has been prepared which summarises the comments received and provides an officer response where relevant. These have been considered and will inform the content of the Local Plan.

All responses can be viewed in full on the Consultation Portal

A report of the consultation responses was discussed at the Planning Policy and Built Heritage Working Party in November 2015, and subsequently by Cabinet.
