Today (25 October 2016) is just a preview event to the main consultation that will start in November. Although a preview, the turn out has been great.

The public will be able to go along to a number of public open events as well as view and comment online.

This plan will set the strategy for a generation to come and we would really urge people to take an interest and give us your feedback and thoughts.

The plans are about what could be built and where, it’s not just about homes but also about business.

Local people know their locality better than anyone and we want as many as people to engage with us.
