Our proposed plan

This plan shows development for the next 10 years and an indication of development for the subsequent 10 year period. Based on when we expect to adopt this plan, it covers the period 2017 until 2027. Once adopted, it will replace the adopted local plan and will be updated regularly (every 5 years) so it is kept up to date and is responsive to change.
