Amended Allocations and Development Management DPD

Representation Period

Monday 25th September 2023 until 5pm on Monday 6th November 2023

We are now seeking representations on the Second Publication Amended Allocations & Development Management DPD. Following the close of the previous representation period it was decided that a Second Regulation 19 Consultation would be required due to a representation received from the Environment Agency and a change in situation regarding the Gypsy & Traveller Pitch Delivery Strategy.

Prior to submitting the document to the Secretary of State, the District Council has a statutory requirement to provide a six-week consultation period to enable the submission of a Statement of Representations. This period will commence from Monday 25th September until 5pm on Monday 6th November 2023.
