We have started the process of reviewing our Local Plan, the blueprint we use to earmark land for homes, jobs and open space for the next 20 years, and want to hear your views on what issues we should consider as we think about how life will change or is changing already.
The plan will set out how we will:
Provide enough good quality and affordable housing, including social housing
Create a range of jobs
Encourage growth in the tourism, cultural and creative, technological and service-based parts of the economy
Create well-designed buildings and public space
Support vibrant town centres
Secure new infrastructure such as roads and schools
Encourage sustainable travel and energy efficient buildings
Enhance and preserve our historic and natural environment
Overall the plan will seek to address the challenges of climate change and work to improve the health and wellbeing of our communities especially in the aftermath of the current pandemic.
