County Borough Council (CCBC) is in the process of
preparing a Replacement Local Development Plan (RLDP) to
cover the period 2018 - 2033, which once adopted will
replace the currently adopted LDP (2007 - 2022). The LDP is
the Council's land use plan that will establish where and
how much new development will take place in the County
Borough over the period 2018 - 2033. It will also identify
which areas need to be protected from development.
RLDP will be prepared in the line with Council's adopted

starting point in undertaking the review is the currently

this stage of the RLDP process, the consultation is
focussed on participation and discussions with the key

RLDP Preferred Strategy. However, early discussions with
key stakeholders on the evidence base and strategic
options, preferred strategy and related proposals are
critical for building consensus.
