Replacement Deposit Plan
This represents the first full draft of an emerging local development plan, and sets out the strategy, vision, strategic, and topic specific policies. It identifies and allocates land for housing and employment purposes and indicates where these and other uses will be permitted. It also identifies areas where policies designed to protect the environment from inappropriate developments apply. A Sustainability Appraisal report and Habitats Regulations Assessment will also be prepared and published.
The final Deposit Plan will be subject to formal consultation to allow any new comments to be submitted. These comments are known as representations, and can include proposals for changes to policy or new or revised development sites. The council will publish all the representations it receives.
