Local Plan Approved


After 8 years in the making, the Local Plan has been approved and will preserve 96% of existing greenbelt across the Borough.  The Plan now ends years of uncertainty, costs and reduces the risk of speculative development going forward. 

The Local Plan was adopted at a Council Meeting held on 25th April, by a large majority of Councillors, with cross party support.

The Plan has the support of your local Conservative Candidates, Cllr's David Elms, Dennis Paul and Keith Witham.  

Speaking at the meeting, for the area he lives in, Cllr Dennis Paul said, "this Plan has been shaped by compromise, so much so that we have seen 1,800 buildings taken OUT of the Plan which would have affected the greenbelt around Fairlands".
