Previous Representation Period

Having reviewed the comments received on previous consultations and brought together the necessary evidence we are now seeking representations on the Publication Amended Allocations & Development Management DPD. 

Prior to submitting the document to the Secretary of State, the District Council has a statutory requirement to provide a six week consultation period to enable the submission of a Statement of Representations. This period will commence from Monday 14th November until 12 noon on Monday 9th January 2023. We have extended the consultation period as extra flooding information has been added.

The following documents will be made available by us for inspection:
