Local Plan Review 2016-2036

We are currently is undertaking a review of our Local Plan (2006 to 2028) which was adopted in March 2015.

We are committed to a review of the Local Plan following concerns raised by the Inspector, regarding the housing and employment land allocations at Wincanton.

The review has been used as an opportunity to ensure that the whole Local Plan remains effective and up to date, and will result in a new Local Plan Review covering the period 2016 to 2036.
