Issues & Scoping Topic Areas - Summer 2016
The following topics set out our initial thoughts about what the scope of the new Local Plan should be, and the planning issues that we think it should address. It also sets out the key material that we used as a starting point for developing new planning policies, much of which was also included in the Interim Planning Position Statement (IPPS).

To help guide your thinking, we asked 10 key questions that we wanted you to help us answer:
Is the period up to 2036 the right period for the new Local Plan? If not, what do you suggest, and why?
Do you agree with the range of matters that we propose to cover in the new Local Plan? Is anything missing?
Is this vision still the right one? If not, how should it be changed?
Are the issues highlighted in the themes listed here the right ones?
Are there other themes that we should consider?
Are there any issues or themes for which you think we have not identified the right ‘starting point’ material for developing new policies?
- Is there any further research that you think is needed before new polices can be developed?
In addition, for new housing:
- Do you particularly support or object to any of the potential strategic options for new housing identified?
- Are there any other options that you can think of? If so, what is there to commend them.
