Views Wanted On Local Plan Scoping Report
Members of the public have been invited to give their views on what should be addressed in the Local Plan.
The Scoping Report sets out the key issues the Council believes should be addressed in the new Local Plan, which will replace the existing planning policy framework. As well as laying out – to a limited extent – proposals to deal with these issues.
Available to view now, the public are invited to raise points they feel should be contained in the new Local Plan to ensure it represents the views of the borough.
Councillor Dale Quigley, Cabinet Member for Economic Growth, said: “The Local Plan is an important document for everyone in Redcar and Cleveland. We appreciate that many people had strong feelings about individual parts of the previous Draft Local Plan and these were taken into account by the Council when it decided not to publish the previous draft local plan document.
“The Scoping Report gives the green light to an extended conversation with local residents, community groups, members and businesses, before a new draft Local Plan is produced for publication and further public consultation.
“The Local Plan will provide a blueprint for successful and thoroughly planned growth, to boost the economy in Redcar and Cleveland, create new training opportunities, skills and jobs and deliver the new homes and employment land needed to support economic growth.”
The deadline for comments is Friday, September 4, 2015.
