Local Plan Part II: Pre-Submission Consultation

This Plan allocates additional sites for housing, employment and community facilities across Mendip. There are additional policies identifying Local Green Spaces and existing Employment Sites. The plan contains a draft policy to promote Self and Custom build housing. The Council is consulting on a separate Supplementary Planning Document which gives more details on how the policy would work in practice.

Consultation on a pre-submission draft of the Local Plan Part II closed on 12th February 2018. This is the formal stage of consultation before the Plan is submitted for examination to the Secretary of State.  Officers are now considering the responses received and the next stage will be whether 'modifications' should be made to plan proposals. Any changes will need to be approved by Cabinet and submitted alongside the draft Pre-submission Plan.

Responses to the consultation can be viewed here.
