What happens to my comments?

Once the consultation closes on 10th September 2018, all the comments will be considered by the Planning Policy Team.  As this is a draft Plan consultation (known as Regulation 18), we are able to make changes to the Plan.  We will then publish our final version of the draft Plan later this year, taking account of these comments.  There will be another opportunity for residents and stakeholders to raise further comments (at Regulation 19 stage), which will be passed on to the Planning Inspector.  This version of the Local Plan will be submitted to the Government and considered at a public examination in 2019 by the Planning Inspector.  If approved by the Government, we hope that the Local Plan will be adopted and used by the Council later in 2019.
