Bromsgrove District Plan Review
Bromsgrove Local Plan Preferred Option – Statement from Cllr Phil Thomas, Portfolio Holder for Planning and Regulatory Services, 17th August 2022
Today I’m announcing that we have taken the decision to delay the publication of the Preferred Options stage of the Local Plan review. We understand the frustration that this will cause those wishing to comment on the Plan this September, however this decision has not been taken lightly.
Whilst significant progress has been made in all areas of the Plan, I feel that it is vital to provide as much certainty as possible to our residents and businesses regarding the likely infrastructure required to support the Plan’s delivery. To do this we feel that further work is required.
Officers have been instructed to work with all those responsible for infrastructure provision to secure the further evidence required. In due course a new timetable will be published which will take into account the collection and analysis of this evidence. Whilst this work is taking place, officers will be available meet with those stakeholders wishing to do so. Again, we apologise for this delay, but would reiterate that providing the highest levels of certainty in our plan-making is of the utmost importance to us.’
As soon as it becomes available the new timetable will be published on this page, this ensures all stakeholders receive the same information at the same time, we would ask kindly that you do not contact the Council requesting further updates.
For those stakeholders who wish to meet Council officers who have not already please note these meetings will be focussed on the infrastructure requirements of the plan. If you wish to meet, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
