Exhibitions and Consultation Arrangements

The Council will be running a number of staffed and unstaffed exhibitions throughout the 10 week consultation period.

We want a Plan which reflects not just national planning requirements but also a wide range of local voices. Whether you'd like to support, object or request an amendment to the draft Local Plan, we'd really like to hear your views.

The consultation period will run from Monday 27th September to Friday 3rd December.

Staffed exhibitions

We will be hosting a number of staffed exhibitions where officers will be available to answer any queries you may have about the draft Local Plan, the consultation process and the next steps.

The events will be held at the following venues across the Borough and throughout the consultation period. Additional venues may be added so please return to this page for further details.
