This represents the first full draft of an emerging LDP. The Deposit Plan identifies and allocates land for housing and employment purposes and indicates where these and other uses will be permitted. It also identifies areas where policies designed to protect the environment from inappropriate developments apply.
A Sustainability Appraisal Report (and Habitats Regulations Assessment Report if required) will also be prepared and published.
The deposit plan also sets out a Strategy, Vision, Strategic and Topic Specific Policies and will be subject to formal consultation to allow any new comments to be submitted. These comments are known as representations, and can include proposals for changes to policy or new or revised development sites. The Council will publish all the representations it receives.
The Deposit Plan will be prepared in 2019 and will be published for consultation before the end of the year.
