If you would like to delve into the background evidence which supports the plan, please browse the Document Library. This includes reports on such matters as the district's housing requirement, Gypsy and Traveller needs, settlement hierarchy , detailed ‘scoring’ of suggested sites, assessment of Local Green Space suggestions and much more.
A collection of Evidence Reports has been prepared to accompany each of the Further Draft Local Plan's district-wide policies. The Evidence Reports explain how each individual policy has evolved, what comments were raised at the previous consultation stage, and how we have considered those comments. The Evidence Reports are available to download from the Evidence Reports page.
Local Plan Working Group

Meetings of the Local Plan Working Group are held when required, reflecting the work programme of the emerging Local Plan. The Local Plan Working Group's Terms of Reference are available to download below.
