Emerging Strategy consultation reps

We received representations from 811 individuals and organisations, plus three petitions. You can access them all from this page. 

A consultation report has been produced, which provides a high level summary of the number and type of responses we received to each question posed in the Emerging Strategy paper. Detailed analysis is still ongoing, and responses are being used to inform the next stage of the Local Plan Review.

Responses came from a variety of stakeholders including individuals, town and parish councils, councillors, statutory and non-statutory organisations, landowners and developers. The majority (82%) of representations were made by individuals. 

Online reps

Almost 1 in 3 respondents used our online questionnaire. This allows comments to be instantly categorised and easily filtered, to see responses about particular sites or questions. These are all available to view in one spreadsheet, which can be downloaded here:
