The Council has produced a ‘Strategic Options’ document which will be the subject of a consultation exercise commencing Friday 28th October 2016 and ending Friday 9th December 2016.
This consultation follows on from and is informed by the recent consultation on the Key Messages document. The Key Messages document consultation enabled the Council to firm up the vision for the Plan, the issues to be faced by the Plan, the objectives for the Plan, a preferred settlement hierarchy and the key messages emerging.
The Strategic Options document considers Growth Options for the Plan (the amount of growth to be provided) and Spatial Options (how growth is to be distributed across the County). The outcome of the consultation will help the Council to draw up a ‘Preferred Strategy’ for the Plan which itself will be subject of a further consultation in the form of a pre-deposit consultation draft Plan.
