The Local Plan (Allocations) identifies sites for specific uses including, housing, employment, retail, recreation and green infrastructure up to 2026.
Only development which conforms to the distribution strategy of the adopted Core Strategy is considered in the Allocations Plan.
A number of sites (those considered to be strategic) are not shown in the plan as they have already been identified in the Core Strategy.
All sites in the Allocations Plan are subject to sustainability appraisal. This assesses all the development options against a series of environmental criteria.
The Plan was adopted by council on 23 July 2014, and can be viewed immediately below:
