South Tyneside Council have recently published a draft local plan. A local plan sets a framework for how areas will grow over 15-20 years.
Local Plans set out the strategic priorities for development of an area and cover commercial, housing, private and public development, including transport infrastructure, along with protection for the local environment. They are made up of a series of documents that should set out clear guidance on what development will and won’t be permitted in your area.
Consultation is now open which gives you the chance to voice your opinions on the policies or proposals within the draft local plan. You can do this until the 11th October.
The consultation process enables community engagement, and a chance to realise the potential of your land.
If you would like to comment on the proposals, but need assistance in doing so, please contact us and we can make representations on your behalf. You can also find us on LinkedIn, Twitter, or Facebook.
