Stay informed

Throughout the process of preparing the Local Plan we want to engage with a wide range of local people, businesses and community groups to obtain the widest possible agreement on the development of planning policies and the allocation of sites to meet future identified development needs.

The resulting plan needs to ensure that the sustainable development of the area can be achieved in a way that maintains and improves the health and well-being of local people and carefully balances the need for new homes, employment opportunities and other supporting development, with the protection of important heathland, harbour and coastal habitats, green spaces and unique heritage assets.
