Local plan consultation

Local plan consultation

Terry Whittaker/2020Vision

What is the local plan?

Shropshire Council are currently consulting on the draft local plan, which will outline the distribution of development until 2036.

This review includes, but is not necessarily limited to:

  • Deciding on the location of future housing development to accommodate the many thousands of houses that the county has committed to.
  • Deciding on the location of future employment sites.

Consultation on this review is ongoing until Friday 8 February 2019. Shropshire Wildlife Trust will be responding to the draft plan, ensuring a balance is struck between the need for providing homes for people AND wildlife. 

We encourage everyone to take a look at the plan and add your views, it can be found here. 

Our response February 2019

The Preferred Sites Consultation has now closed – you can download our response below.

But this is by no means that last chance to make a comment. Later this year there should be consultations on “Strategic Sites” and “Policies”. After that there will be a consultation on the final version of the plan before it goes to the planning inspector.

If you want to make sure that you don’t miss out on the opportunity to have your say then you can request to be included on Shropshire Council’s Planning Policy Consultee Database by emailing: planningpolicy@shropshire.gov.uk
