The Local Plan- What Others Think
Prior to the consultation we approached various organisations, representing different viewpoints who have previously expressed opinions on how the borough should develop. We asked them to tell you what they think you should consider when responding to the consultation and to explain their opinions. The messages can be viewed here. Please be aware that the views given are not those of the Council.
