Replacement Local Development Plan

The Preferred Strategy for the Replacement Local Development Plan (RLDP) and an amended Delivery Agreement were approved by Council on 10th March 2020.  The next step would have been to consult on the Preferred Strategy and supporting documents along with the Candidate sites assessment report.  However, given the current circumstances the preparation of the Replacement Local Development Plan has been temporarily suspended.  A revised Delivery Agreement will be prepared when the situation becomes clearer.
