Building Borough Council have received arout 2,000 response forms and letters to the recent Local Development Framework (LDF) consultation and taken the decision to delay the release of draft plans.

A debate was started in September 2011 asking for general public’s comments on the proposals on meeting the housing growth target of 390 new dwellings each year up to 2023/2024. The strategy aims to provide much needed new homes in the area at affordable prices while balancing new employment and the provision of new or enhanced services.

A spokesperson for said:

This is a very good response to the consultation and, when broken down, is likely to result in some 16,000 individual comments for the Council to consider.

To consider these properly and allow the Council to take account of the implications of the new National Policy Framework when published in April 2012, the Council has put back the Publication Draft Plan from March 2012 to September 2012.
