Local Plan: LAST chance to comment

The FINAL public consultation on the Conservative’s draft local plan proposals is now out for consultation. The consultation runs until 5 pm on the 26th of February. Shropshire Council extended the deadline for comments by 3 weeks.

This consultation is referred to as the ‘Regulation 19’ consultation. The aim of this round is to allow people to examine and comment upon the legality and soundness of the draft plans.

This is your VERY last chance to comment on the Conservative plans to ‘impose more houses on the area’. Their plans for 30,000 new dwellings is far in excess of the Government’s recommended growth (25,400) and more than The CPRE calculated (18,000). In my housing survey there was hardly any support for this level of growth.

All comments at this stage will be sent to the planning inspector when they examine the soundness of the plan.

The final consultation runs until 26th February at 5 PM


You will need to fill in both Part A and Part B forms to comment on the plans

David Walker in West Felton (Whittington Division) has done a guide on how to fill in the forms.
