The Core Strategy Review

Plan Publication Version (Regulation 19)

At the Full Council meeting on Thursday 03 March 2022, councillors approved an eight-week consultation on the draft Core Strategy Review (Publication Version). Taking into account previous consultation responses from 2020 to 2021, the document now contains several draft policies containing the following:

  • Housing strategy and allocation sites;
  • Employment;
  • Town, Local and Village Centres;
  • Transport and
  • Green Infrastructure

Development of these policies has been guided by the work of a comprehensive Sustainability Appraisal (SA). The SA has helped to provide an understanding of impacts from the emerging policies and reduce any anticipated effects on key environmental, social and economic objectives.

The consultation was open from Monday 14th March to Monday 9th May 2022. All papers associated with the current consultation can be found on the downloads and links section of this webpage. Downloadable versions of the documents can also be found on the Full Council Webpage at Section 9.
