Issues and Options Consultation

The Issues and Options consultation is an important part of the Local Plan process. It is the first stage of public consultation.

This is a time when residents are asked how they would like to tackle a range of planning issues and proposed options for the future development of the city.

The Issues and Options consultation document:

  • summarises the key planning challenges and opportunities for the Local Plan to address
  • sets out a draft vision and series of objectives for the Local Plan to achieve
  • proposes policy options and approaches for the future development of the city
  • invites views and comments from local residents, businesses, landowners and other stakeholders

Consultation on the initial Issues and Options stage of the Local Plan has now concluded. It ran from 24 October 2022 to 5 December 2022.

Officers will now review all comments and proposals received during the consultation and, along with further technical evidence, will produce the next stage of the Plan – the Preferred Options stage. 

You can still view the Issues and Options document, but can no longer comment on it.

You can also view other supporting documents that are being used to develop the Local Plan.
