Local Plan Review - ‘Preferred Sites’ Consultation

Shropshire Council is continuing to progress with its Local Plan Review.

To inform this review, Shropshire Council is now seeking comments on the third stage of consultation on the Local Plan Review, the ‘Preferred Sites’. This consultation runs from Thursday 29th November 2018 to Thursday 31st January 2019.

The ‘Preferred Sites’ Consultation:

  • Outlines a housing policy direction to improve the delivery of local housing needs;

  • Establishes development guidelines and development boundaries for Shrewsbury, Principal and Key Centres, and each proposed Community Hub.

  • Sets out preferred sites to deliver the preferred scale and distribution of housing and employment growth during the plan period to 2036.

     

    If you are interested in being involved in shaping the future of your local area, then we would like to hear from you.

     

    The ‘Preferred Sites’ Consultation Document; questionnaire; and related documents (including Sustainability Appraisal; Habitats Regulations Assessment; and Equality and Social Inclusion Impact Assessment), are available on the Shropshire Council website at: www.shropshire.gov.uk/local-plan-consultation
