Derry City and Strabane District Council publish Preferred Options Paper (POP) Interim Representations Report

Derry City and Strabane District Council published the Preferred Options Paper (POP) on 31st May 2017 and held a 12 week consultation period over summer 2017. The POP provided the basis for consulting with the public and stakeholders on a series of options for dealing with key issues in the Plan area. The POP consultation and engagement took many forms in an effort to reach and encourage all citizens to engage in this significant stage of the Local Development plan preparation. Methods of consultation included public engagement events, advertisements and web-based consultation.

The Interim POP Representation Report has been prepared to provide the public and all those who provided representations with a summary of the key issues raised in response to the Council’s LDP Preferred Options Paper. In line with our published Statement of Community Involvement, a final public Representations Report will be presented and published in due course (at the time of the Plan Strategy and then at the Local Policies Plan) to advise how the Council has taken the representations into account in the preparation of the Derry City and Strabane District Local Development Plan.
