This follows last year’s consultation that ran between January and July 2020 that sought views on where the Council should focus future housing growth.

A six-week consultation begins on Monday 29 March ending on Monday 10 May 2021. Details of how you can submit comments can be found further down this page.

All papers associated with the current consultation, including the Sustainability Appraisal and Statement of Consultation, can be found as part of the agenda for the Extraordinary Council meeting.

A library of 25 Strategic Growth Area (SGA) assessments have been undertaken providing background information on all preferred and rejected growth locations.
