Community involvement in planning 

The statement of community involvement sets out council policy for consultation on the local plan, supplementary planning documents, neighbourhood plans and planning applications. 

Local plan review 

We will review our local plan and assess whether it needs updating after expected changes to planning legislation (Levelling Up and Regeneration Bill) and associated updates to national policy and guidance. See Cabinet 4 November 2021 item 73

Shapley Heath garden community project   

As part of the government’s garden communities programme, we explored the opportunity for a new community at Shapley Heath. This project has now concluded (see Cabinet minutes 4 November item 73). 

We will take the learning into consideration when we prepare the next local plan, and will consider reasonable alternatives for significant housing growth.  

National planning policy 

National planning policies for England are set out by the government in the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF). The NPPF is a material consideration in the determination of planning applications.
