One of the purposes of the LDP is to give a recommended usage designation to land eg for housing, which will then be difficult to argue against if a planning application is made. Sites for 5000 houses have been identified, as well as 50 hectares of land for industrial or business use. Although it is a lengthy document it is important to study the plan to see if there is anything you would take exception to and then make comment. Once amended and approved it regulates the whole planning process until 2019 and beyond.
Representations must be on the official form and made by 29th November.
