Open consultations

We are keen to involve people in our work and plans. Through consultation there is the opportunity for everyone who has an interest in the Park to help plan its future.

Details of our current consultations are listed below. If no consultations are showing we have none being carried out at present.

Consultation on proposed Submission draft Local Plan 2016 - 2036

The final 6-week consultation period on the Authority's Local Plan runs from 17 January - 28 February 2018. This represents Regulation 19 in the relevant Government planning regulations and further details can be found on our Local Plan webpage. Once the final 6-week public consultation has closed at the end of February, the Local Plan, the evidence base that supports it and the representations recived will be submitted to the Secretary of State for independent examination.
