Long term plans for the borough
Future development of the Borough
With a lot more housing needed in the Borough in the years ahead, we are currently working on our blueprint to ensure the new homes are built in the right places and come with the right schools, roads and facilities.
Updated national government policy provides a standard method of calculating the minimum number of homes that each council should plan for. In order to ensure these homes are properly planned, we are updating our Local Plan, which will set the principles of where and how the homes and other development should be provided.
The Local Plan Update will be produced in conjunction with a wide range of organisations as well as with input from public consultation and engagement. To find out more about the stages and timescales of our Local Plan update, visit the Local Plan Update webpage.
