New Local Plan timetable

Monday, 5 September, 2022

In May, EHDC took the decision to suspend progression to the latter stages of the plan-making process (Regulation 19) and instead to conduct further early-stage consultation (Regulation 18).

As a result, the Planning Policy team would like to advise you that we have recently updated the Local Development Scheme.

This is the timetable associated with the new Local Plan, which will deliver the strategy and accompanying policies to guide the development needed to support our growing communities, whilst tackling the climate emergency we find ourselves in.

The next early-stage of formal consultation (Regulation 18 – Part 1) will be in November 2022, whereby we will be engaging with stakeholders and members of the public on the issues and priorities across the district, as well as a revised vision and objectives for the emerging Local Plan.
