The Councils are consulting on these options in order to:

  • seek views to help determine their suitability for development;
  • help understand views on what type of development should be sought if suitable and what type of requirements should be secured as part of development;
  • enable comments on the evidence base that has informed the Consultation; and
  • provide the opportunity for additional options to be put forward.

Consultation responses will help inform decisions on a draft Local Plan (expected for consultation in 2017).
