Development and Site Allocations (DaSA) Local Plan


Development and Site Allocations (DaSA) Local Plan

This Plan allocates sites for particular uses as well as setting out more detailed policies for the effective management of development in relation to key issues.


The DaSA implements the development strategy and core policies set out in the Core Strategy.

The 'Proposed Submission' DaSA Local Plan, along with its accompanying Sustainability Appraisal (SA) Report, was published for a 6 week public representation period, which closed at 4:30pm on Friday 7 December 2018.

Representations made on the Proposed Submission DaSA will be published here once they have been verified and accepted.

The DaSA is supported by a number of background documents, which are available to download on the Background Evidence pages and under Downloads below.

The DaSA does not include housing allocations in designated Neighbourhood Plan Areas. Further details are available on the Neighbourhood Plans page.


Next steps

In January 2019, the Council plans to submit the DaSA Local Plan along with supporting documents and the representations received to the Planning Inspectorate for examination on behalf of the Secretary of State.

The timings of the examination will be determined by the Planning Inspectorate. The Council's website will be updated when information is received.

During the examination a Planning Inspector will assess whether the DaSA Local Plan has been prepared in line with the relevant legal requirements (including the duty to cooperate) and whether it meets the tests of 'soundness' contained in the National Planning Policy Framework.

The examination will include a public hearing, or "oral examination" but please remember it is the Inspector who decides who is heard at the examination.
