You can view the adopted local development plan on the Local Development Plan homepage and clicking on the document you wish to read. You do not need to register to view the documents.

The website also provides an interactive means to submit representations on emerging planning policy documents during specific public consultation periods. You must register on the online consultation system in order to make a representation.

There are a number of steps that must be taken to make a representation using the online form:

  1. Register your details with the Council by clicking on the link at the top of this page and filling in the registration form. In order to register, you will need to give us your name, e-mail address, and postal address. This will enable us to contact you to confirm that your representation has been received.  You only need to register once.
  2. Once you have registered, in order to submit your representation you will need to select the document you are interested in from the list of documents currently open for public consultation and then select the relevant chapter, paragraph or policy.
  3. Click on the following icon: Write to view the online response form that will allow you to submit representations.
    To view any representations that have been made, click on the following icon: View.
    (Note: Representations are processed when the actual consultation ends and not before, only representations processed will be available to view.)
  4. If you wish to return to the site in the future, you will need to login using your email address and password.
