Local Plan

Our Local Plan sets out policies and proposals to guide planning decisions and establishes a framework for sustainable economic growth and development in the Borough up until 2032.

Our Local Plan (PDF) [8MB] covers issues including:

  • how many new homes are needed and where they should be located
  • the amount and proposed location of new employment land
  • how we can protect and enhance the natural and historic environment
  • plans for new infrastructure and the improvement of town centres and community facilities

We use our  Local Plan (PDF) [8MB] and the maps associated with it to help us make decisions on planning applications.
