How have we taken into account comments from the previous stages?

In July last year, we published the First Draft Local Plan. Having considered all the comments we received, we have made some changes and we are now publishing the final draft plan.

The Consultation Statement details how we took into account comments from previous consultations in writing the Final Draft Local Plan. You can also view individual responses to the First Draft Local Plan, and all comments in document order.
