Issues and options

Issues and options was the first stage in the process of creating the new local plan.

The document sets out the main issues such as the need for housing, employment and other development as well as options such as what growth figure we should adopt and where should new development go. This is an important stage because the plan will be developed in line with both evidence and the response to this consultation.

Before any decisions were made about how much housing and employment land is required for the future and where this should be built, it was important that you have your say.
