Committee approves the submission of the Local Plan

Last night’s Planning Policy Committee approved the submission of the Local Plan to the government for independent examination. This means it will be submitted in advance of the introduction of a new government target, which would require the district to plan for 12,900 new homes or 645 homes per year. Based on the rural nature, environmental and landscape designations and the significant proportion of the district covered by Green Belt, the Council believes the number of homes the Local Plan can deliver is 6,056 or 303 homes per year.
