Local Plan 2040

We’ve drafted an important part of the new Local Plan.

The new Local Plan covers the period up to 2040. As we’re committed to protecting the Green Belt (covering 93% of the District), at this stage, we are not considering any Green Belt release. The new plan proposes most new developments should be constructed within existing built up areas.

The plan includes proposals for new homes, protecting business space and supporting our high streets and new facilities such as schools, health centres and transport. It also aims to protect the District’s character and environment.

The consultation closed on Wednesday 11 January 2023. Responses are now being reviewed and an update will be presented to Development and Conservation Advisory Committee (DCAC) in due course.
