Next steps

This Preferred Options consultation runs from 25 March to 4pm on 17 May 2024.

At the end of the consultation period, we will collate and respond to all the comments received. We will then use this input to help shape the next stage of the draft Local Plan, which is the Publication version. The Publication Version will include our final proposed policies.

In terms of evidence base, the following will be produced over the coming months and will inform the Publication version of the Local Plan:

  • Sequential test
  • Viability Assessment of the Local Plan
  • Consideration of BNG more than 10%
