Development and Site Allocations (DaSA) Local Plan


Development and Site Allocations (DaSA) Local Plan


The 'Options and Preferred Options' version of the Development and Site Allocations Local Plan (DaSA) and its accompanying Sustainability Appraisal Report was made available for a 10-week public consultation between 12 December 2016 to 20 February 2017.

Representations received during the public consultation can be found here.

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 on Neighbourhood Plans can be found here: Neighbourhood Plans

The full document, which is very large, together with a version that has been divided into sections, is available to view and download under Related Documents below.

Next steps

All comments received as part of the 'Options and Preferred Options' consultation will be considered and will be used to inform the next stage, which is production of a 'Submission Version' of the Plan. That will also be subject to a further consultation period, currently planned for spring 2018. The latest timetable for the production of the Local Plan documents can be found here: Local Development Scheme.
