LDF Issues Report

Last Updated:

The publication of the Issues Report (September 2003) represented the first stage of the Local Development Framework (LDF) preparation process.

The report set out the main spatial issues - identified by the Council at the time - that needed to be addressed in the LDF.

Public consultation on the report took place during the Autumn of 2003. The purpose of this consultation was to see whether the public, stakeholders and other consultees agreed with the council's assessment or whether any other issues should be considered. The Council continued to accept and consider representations after the conclusion of the formal consultation period.

The feedback received during the formal public consultation on this document, and the council's proposed response, was reported to the LDF Steering Panel in November 2004. Representations made after this period were reported to meetings of the panel in April and July 2005 and have been incorporated in the published schedule of responses.

The response to consultation on the Issues Report informed the council's decisions on the Preferred Options.
