Preferred Options Paper (POP)
The Preferred Options Paper (POP) was published on 31st May 2017. LDP POP Consultations are now being considered by the Local Development Plan (LDP) team and a report is being prepared to summarise responses received following the end of the 12 week consultation period, which closed on 22nd August 2017.
Council will consider representations and the issues raised as we move to prepare the next stage of the LDP process, the draft Plan Strategy. The draft Plan Strategy will be based on both the information the Council has gathered to date as part of its LDP Baseline Evidence and also the public and stakeholders’ responses to the POP.
Prior to the publication of the draft Plan Strategy, we will produce a representations report for Council Members and for publication. It will summarise all responses received during the POP consultation and how they have been ‘taken account of’ in the LDP. The draft LDP Plan Strategy will then be produced, during 2018, for further public consultation.
