Local Plan Drop In Session @ Henfield Hall
Feb 25 @ 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Drop in session for residents so that we can talk to you about the Local Plan and explain the options we are consulting on.

It is important to note that the current draft Local Plan is for consultation purposes only. This means that it does not represent Council policy, and won’t yet have any significant bearing on decisions made on planning applications.

In particular, there are a number of potential sites listed in the document, but it is anticipated that only some of these will ultimately be allocated for development. The decisions of the Council on sites to be allocated will depend in part on the responses it receives during the consultation.

Your involvement in this process is very important to us.

The Local Plan could affect where you live, work, and spend your leisure time. The only way we will know what you think about our Local Plan is if you tell us during the Consultation.
