Welcome to the planning policy home-page, where you can find links to all of our planning policy web-pages.
If you need any help, spot any problems or have any suggestions, please contact the Planning Policy Team.
The team's main job is to produce and review the council's local plan, which is required by law and sets out how land should be used for such things as housing, employment, recreation and conservation. The aim of the plan is to achieve our economic, environmental and social goals through sustainable development. This means the plan must be tailor-made to suit the local area and local communities, mindful of our aspirations as a nation and committed to our international obligations.
