Deposit Plan

Deposit Plan

The Deposit Local Development Plan Consultation closed 4.30 pm Friday 1 June 2018.

The Authority has prepared an Initial Consultation Report which gives further details of the Preferred Strategy Consultation process, summarises the main issues raised by the consultation, and provides summaries of representations together with the Authority’s response.

The Report summarises comments received on sites on the Candidate Site Register and new or amended sites received. The Authority’s response is also set out.

An updated full assessment of the Candidate Site Register can be found here.

The Authority’s full assessment of New or Amended Sites can be found here.

Even though the Authority has recorded its own views on the alternative or amended sites if stakeholders have a view on these sites they must be submitted as part of the Deposit consultation. There is potential for this to change through the Examination and stakeholders need to express their views on the alternative sites now using the comments form provided.

The Deposit Local Development Plan

The Deposit Local Development Plan sets out:

  • Where we are now: What key issues need to be addressed?
  • Where we want to be: An overall vision for the future
  • How we get there: A land use strategy for the Park identifying the scale of overall development proposed, where it will be located and what other strategic policies are needed to help implement the strategy.
  • A Proposals Map illustrating each of the Plan’s policies and proposals with a spatial component.
  • A Constraints Map is used to show delineations which are determined by other mechanisms. The Constraints Map does not form part of Deposit Plan.
