Local Plan Review - ‘Preferred Sites’ Consultation

Shropshire Council is continuing to progress with its Local Plan Review.

To inform this review, Shropshire Council is now seeking comments on the third stage of consultation on the Local Plan Review, the ‘Preferred Sites’. This consultation runs from Thursday 29th November 2018 to Friday 8 February 2019.  A consultation meeting will be held at the Guildhall in Frankwell, Shrewsbury on Thursday 24 January 2019 to discuss the proposals for the area around Bayston Hill (Shrewsbury Rural South) from 7pm.

The ‘Preferred Sites’ Consultation:

·      Outlines a housing policy direction to improve the delivery of local housing needs;

·      Establishes development guidelines and development boundaries for Shrewsbury, Principal and Key Centres, and each proposed Community Hub.
