Regulation 18 Consultation – Revised Scoping and Initial Options
Thursday 25 January to 5.00 pm Friday 9 March 2018
Stratford-on-Avon District Council is holding a six-week public consultation on the revised scope of its Site Allocations Plan. The Site Allocations Plan is one of a number of planning policy documents that, when adopted, will be used by the Council to help make decisions on planning applications across Stratford-on-Avon District. It will also enable communities to know where new development may happen in the future.
The consultation document is divided into four parts which you can comment on, in particular by responding to specific questions relating to the topics covered. You can respond to any or all of these questions. The topics are:
· Part 1 The approach to identifying Reserve Housing Sites
· Part 2 The definition of Settlement (Built-Up Area) Boundaries
· Part 3 The proposed approach towards Specific Sites
· Part 4 Self-Build and Custom Housebuilding
The consultation document can be viewed on the District Council’s website at www.stratford.gov.uk/siteallocations . It is also available to inspect at the District Council offices – Elizabeth House, Church Street, Stratford-upon-Avon CV37 6HX and at public libraries across the District. Copies of the document can be obtained from the Council.
The consultation is also being advertised by Public Notice in the Stratford Herald (25 January), Leamington Spa, Redditch and Stratford Observer (25/26 January) and Midweek News (30 January) 2018.
