The first step in the production of the Council's Allocations Development Plan document is 'Issues and Options' stage. This page provides information on the Issues and Options Paper which is a discussion document that sought views on how the Council should identify sites to meet the development needs of the borough up to 2026.
The Issues and Options paper
The Issues and Options paper introduces the Allocations Development Plan document and sets out site specific options for development including housing, employment, community uses, mixed uses, retail, open space, recreation, tourism and other land uses. This first stage of consultation provides an opportunity to consider the basic underlying issues of each proposed site and its land use.
The Council itself is not promoting any of the sites contained within the Issues and Options paper and they are for discussion purposes only at this stage. When considering sites please refer to the background information and options set out in the Issues and Options paper.

The Issues and Options paper should be read in conjunction with the Sustainability Appraisal. Sustainability Appraisals aim to ensure that planning documents are informed by sustainability principles at an early stage in the process. This means that any social, economic and/or environmental decisions taken within the plan considers the needs of future generations.
Documents can also be viewed at the Council Offices and the local libraries.
