Development and Site Allocations (DaSA) Local Plan


Development and Site Allocations (DaSA) Local Plan

This document will allocate sites for particular uses in line with the Core Strategy, as well as set out more detailed policies.

The DaSA will form Part 2 of the Council's new Local Plan and develops the spatial strategies and core policies set out in the Core Strategy, which represents Part 1 of the Local Plan.  It reviews existing site allocations and development boundaries and, at this stage, puts forward options and preferred options for allocating specific areas of land for particular uses in line with the development provisions of the Core Strategy.  It also puts forward more detailed policies where these are needed to provide guidance for the effective management of development in relation to key issues.

Potential development allocations are not included within the DaSA Local Plan consultation where areas are designated as Neighbourhood Plan Areas. Further details are available on the Neighbourhood Plans page.


Current Position

All comments received as part of the 'Options and Preferred Options' consultation, which was held between 12 December 2016 and 20 February 2017, are being considered and will be used to inform the next stage of the Plan. This will be the production of a 'Submission Version' which will also be subject to a further consultation period, currently planned for autumn/winter 2018. The latest timetable for the production of the Local Plan documents can be found on the Local Development Scheme page.

The full document above is a very large file and may take some time to download. Therefore a version that has been split into sections has also been made available.


Supporting Documents and Background Evidence

Background papers and evidence studies on the key aspects of the social, economic and environmental characteristics of the area play a critical role in supporting the policies of the Local Plan.

The DaSA is supported by a number of documents which are available under Related Documents below, as well as a number of background papers and evidence studies available on the Background Evidence page.
