LPP2: Site Allocations and Development Management Policies

Pre Submission Consultation

1.6  This Pre-Submission version of Local Plan Part 2 is published for consultation under Regulation 19 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012. It represents the third key stage in the development of Local Plan Part 2 and follows on from the Issues and Options document that was published for public consultation in 2017, and the Preferred Options document which was published in May 2018.

1.7  This Pre-Submission Plan is the result of a review of the 620 responses to the Issues and Options Consultation, 995 responses to the Preferred Options consultation, extensive consultation with stakeholders, technical analysis and a number of assessments.

1.8 The Pre-Submission Plan is divided into the six main chapters: General Policies, Location of Development, Protecting Places, Economic Prosperity, Housing Policies and Housing Sites. Within each chapter there are a number of topics and associated policies or maps. Policies within this document are named using the prefix of 'DM' to indicate that they are a 'development management' policy used to determine applications, and to differentiate from the nomenclature used in Local Plan Part 1.
