The existing Local Plan
The Council's original Local Plan was adopted in 1998. Some of these policies are still in force. In 2006 the Council adopted the Local Plan Alterations, which replaced parts of the 1998 Local Plan. Most of these policies are still in force.
The Council also has Supplementary Planning Guidance documents, which provide detailed guidance on particular issues, e.g. design of buildings, and vehicle parking on new developments
National and Regional policies also form part of our Local Development Plan
