Allocations and Designations
The Allocations and Designations Local Plan allocates sites to
meet the Borough's future development needs and designates areas of
land where specific policies will apply. It is consistent with the
strategic approach which is set in the Council's Core Strategy and
Rural Issues Plan. It was adopted by the Council on 17 July 2013. A
copy of the plan is available to view below, along with previous
versions and other supporting documentation.
The Policies Map has been updated to incorporate the changes
arising from the adoption of the Allocations and Designations Plan.

The plan was produced between 2008 and 2013. Consultation was
undertaken at various stages in accordance with the appropriate
Regulations and the Council's Statement of Community Involvement.
The plan was submitted to the Secretary of State in May 2012 and an
independent Inspector held hearing sessions between November 2012
and January 2013. The Inspector concluded that the plan was sound
in his report which was sent to the Council in June 2013.
