'Strategic Options' consultation document 2011

We are currently experiencing intermittent technical issues whilst migrating to a new Planning system, please accept our apologises during this period.

Pre-application Advice

The pre application and enquiry service has TEMPORARILY been SUSPENDED due to the high volume of applications we are receiving. Pre applications for major and strategic developments will continue to be accepted. 

If you are seeking advice on whether planning permission would be required please see our planning guides.

Alternatively you can submit a certificate of lawfulness application. 

This consultation document was produced as a way to re-engage the public and other stakeholders in the plan preparation process following a delay following the Issues & Options in 2007. It sought views on three broad, strategic options related to different possible approaches to the location of Greenfield development required to meet the development requirements in the borough.

The document included references to potential Greenfield development sites based on the SHLAA and other information held by the council, but the document did not identify a preferred option.

The consultation document also sought to provide a reminder of the issues and key messages provided through earlier stages of the plan-making process, including the vision, and other elements which have since fed through into the later versions of the emerging Local Plan such as the Preferred Option Local Plan and the Pre-Submission Local Plan.
